My predicted grades are
A* Biology
A* Business studies
A Psychology
B Math (C in AS)
A EPQ
I will be applying for Natsci for the biology/earth sciences pathway or something (their course structure is really confusing).
My question is, their entry requirements state I only need one science but how likely are Durham going to want an A in math (I wont be taking any math modules)? So far all but one of my other unis given me an offer which means I need a higher math grade than predicted.

Do Durham particularly focus on specific subjects or is it more about the grades?
what are other peoples experiences of getting Durham offers?
Thanks in advance

Durham’s words:

You will need three A-levels (excluding General Studies and Critical Thinking) or equivalent with at least one of these in a Science (Biology; Human Biology; Chemistry; Mathematics; Physics.) The standard offer is A*AA at A-Level and you will need specific A-level grades to study:
Biology: A in either Biology or Chemistry.
Chemistry: A*A in any order in Chemistry and Mathematics.
Computer Science: A in Mathematics.
Economics: A in Mathematics.
Mathematics: Either A*A in any order in Maths and Further Maths at A-level or A* in Maths plus A in AS Further Maths for students unable to take A2 Further Maths.
Physics: A*A in any order in Maths and Physics.

Thanks, but I was asking if they will include 2 sciences in the offer if I'm taking two (which I am, biology and maths) as their entry requirements state 'at least' one.

Oh sorry.
You choose modules when studying natural sciences and you’ll need the A in maths to do half of them, hope this helps
