Hi

I'm currently doing A Levels and studying Psychology, Biology, French and English Lang
I've been taking a look at university courses and I'm wondering if all BSc courses require 2 "hard" sciences at A Level (i.e. Maths / Chem / Physics / Biology) - of course I only have one of these hard sciences as Psychology doesn't count, and I'm wondering if I'll have to stick with a BA instead, which wouldn't be a problem.

I know that BSc degrees are obviously far more science-based than BA degrees, but do any uni courses accept only 1 hard science for a BSc? Sorry if it's a stupid question!

Thank you

Bsc in which subject? Depending on the subject there could be some universities out there.

..............
In subjects where there can be a choice, eg Geography, Economics etc, then the decision to award a BA or BSc is usually down to the funding structure behind the course. THe entry requirements are entirely up to the university, so there is no general requirement to have 2 'hard sciences'. You will have to hunt around and see what they each ask for though.
