    Can anyone tell me if there's any courses that are to do with science (mainly being physics) at university where you only need physics a level? I'm doing french, drama and theatre studies and physics a level and I don't want a uni course to do with french or drama and I also don't want to do either biology, chemistry or maths a level. Somebody help.

    You should look into courses with a foundation year specifically targeted to students without the right A levels.

    Physics degrees are highly mathematical - any degree that would accept you directly onto the course without at least AS in maths would be setting you up for failure and not acting in your best interests.

    You might want to consider what degree you want to do. All the physical sciences and engineering require maths and even if you were to do a degree such as physics there will be a significant mathematical component which will be more complex than what is studied at A level.

    Physics at university is extremely mathematical. Ideally, an applicant for undergraduate study would have further maths as well as maths. The Open University would accept you but you would need to upgrade your mathematical knowledge rapidly.
