University choices: Bristol, KCL, Cardiff, Sussex. Also applying to EP at Oxford for the lols. Wanted to apply for NatSci (neuro pathway) at Cambs but I don't have anywhere I can study A-levels anymore (sixth form college closed after I had been accepted!)
What subject(s) are currently studying?: I'm taking an Access to HE - Science course, so studying bio, chem & maths.
A-levels see sob story above
GCSEs were a decade ago, so not really relevant anymore!
Why Neuroscience? I was interested in psychology, then started becoming more interested in the biological underpinning than pure behavioral study. I have a pet interest in models of neurodivergence, as that's where I started out in my reading, plus I'm autistic myself. Apart from that my curiosity is pretty broad!

University choices: Definitely Glasgow and Edinburgh, possibly Bristol, Sussex, Aberdeen, Manchester, KCL & Newcastle
What subject(s) are you currently studying?: Brace yourselves... biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, Dutch, English, French, philosophy and music.
Grades: Well I'm not from the UK sooo... I'm planning to get an 8 on my Dutch VWO and with that I'd meet at least the minimum entry requirements for the universities above.
Why Neuroscience?: Because I like science, but also because I think the human brain is one of the most fascinating things in the universe and there's so much we've yet to find out!

University choices: so far I've only choosen Aberdeen because theirs is the only course offering neuroscience with psychology (as far as I know).
What subject(s) are currently studying?: biology, chemistry and math.
Predicted A2 grades: AAA
AS grades: ABBCC
GCSE grades: 4A* and 2A
Why Neuroscience? The original plan was Medicine, but AS grades are not good enough. So I found neuroscience and fell in love with it.

Sussex do too http://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/underg...ience-bsc/2017 off the top of my head. Also some places do psychology bscs with strong neuroscience or cognitive neuroscience modules, but not explicitly dual honours.
