    Yeah why not? Which Uni's are you looking at? Btw how far you go in life is not determined by your a-level subjects!

    That should be perfectly fine then! Queen Mary want AAA/AAB and Brunel want BBB, they haven't specified any desired a-level subjects. Write an awesome personal statement (remember to start early) and aim to get the grades.

    For Queens Mary you would need either a distinction or a merit and for brunel you need a merit. The distinction would equate to an A and the merit would equate to a B.
