    I've just finished doing my GCSEs and I am interested in going into diagnostic radiography. But for my A Levels I'm not sure whether what I pick will allow me to do so.
    Initially I wasn't sure on what I wanted to be and so was planning on picking: Psychology, Sociology and Philosophy.
    However, now that I am more interested in Radiography I want to pick:
    Biology maybe Chemistry and Psychology/ or Philosophy.
    Would I still be able to go into Radiography even if I do not do Chemistry? I know most Universities require you to do at least one science A Level.
    Thanks =)

    You would be absolutely fine not doing chemistry! I know a few radiographers and none of them took it I think as long as you have biology you'll be fine!

    you can also do diagnostic radiography at many university with a BTEC extemded applied diploma in science, however, i suggest you only do it if you know that it is what you want to do as doing a btec will limit your options if you change your mind afterwards

    Hi Hannah,

    The best advice we have for you on this is to check different university A Level requirements for the course. If they're only requesting you to have one science A Level, then it doesn't matter which one it is- chemistry or not!

    Best of luck,
    Rumneet
