    Hi, I took Physics, Chemistry, IT and Maths in A level but I no longer want to do any sciences, but I want to get into Finance. Is there anything that I can do? And which universities will take me in?

    Hey Samuel,

    Your A-level subjects provide you a broad scientific and logical approach that would be really useful in Finance. You would have to look at the requirements for the course as each University will request different subjects, but I don't think there would be any reason for them not to accept you as Science subjects are greatly appreciated. You can always email the admissions office from the specific University you want to apply to and write your concerns regarding your A-levels. With all of this being said, as mentioned before, I truly believe you will be able to apply for Finance.

    I wish you good luck!

    As above, business/finance courses (and economics, incidentally) normally have no specific requirements except sometimes Maths (which you have). You'd be well placed to make an application for such courses, just make sure to relate your interests in finance/business/etc in your personal statement rather than dwell on why you don't want to pursue sciences
