    I started off with biology chemistry and physics but I was finding physics way too hard and therefore I made the decision to drop it around christmas time last year. Teachers wouldn't allow me to start another A level or BTEC that late into the year so therefore I have to do core maths and an EPQ alongside biology and chemistry. Core maths is an AS level and if I get a decent grade in my EPQ the UCAS points would apparently equate to the UCAS points of an AS level. Would I have any trouble applying to universities? (If I put in the effort I could probably get B's in biology and chemistry maybe an A in biology and I'm looking to get A's in core maths and EPQ)

    You will be limited in which universities you can apply to and possibly which courses but yes there are many that will accept your combination of qualifications. Typically it will be those universities making flexible offers based on UCAS points.

    Is there any way I can check which universities give those types of offer or do I just need to apply and see what happens?

    You will find typical course entry requirements on every university web site. You can also email their admissions staff for advice.
