I really want to study physics at uni but my 3rd a level is sociology (along with the obvious maths and physics). I did do chemistry for AS but got a D. How much of a disadvantage would this be during applications? I'm predicted AAB on UCAS and looking to apply for unis in the AAA - ABB range. If it will be a big disadvantage how could I make up for it on my personal statement? I'm thinking of studying the further maths textbook indepently in my own time anyway to prepare for doing physics at uni. Should I include this?

Anything thats to help you with physics that goes beyond your A levels is definitely worth mentioning. I don't think your D in chemistry will be too bad, considering you've dropped it because you've recognised it's not a strength. Sociology is very different to maths and physics, so it could be good in a way as it gives you a different skill set.

universities don't care what that 3rd a level is so long as you have achieved well
