    I am currently planning to take either a human geography degree or an urban planning degree but I am unsure if my A levels are applicable for me to apply for universities I would want to go to (The requirements say either just As and usually says 'no specific subjects'/doesn't show).

    My A level subjects are Geography, Art and Psychology. I'm planning to apply for UCL, LSE and Kings so far.. It can change still. I got a 6 for my Maths GCSE though and so far I'm uneasy about the fact some top universities specifically require Maths for their Geography courses.

    Will I still get an offer or will the course be fit for me if ever I applied for the degree despite of my A level subjects and if ever I have really high predicted grades and a really good personal statement? :/

    Will the course be a fit for you and whether or not you'll get an offer are two different questions entirely. Your A levels themselves have no issues; you just have to meet/exceed the entry requirements with your predicted and it should be fine. Whether the course fits you or not is the research you have to do yourself; look at the modules and try to find information about the teaching methods and such.
