I started Year 12 two months ago and I do A-Level Biology. I'm very interested in neuroscience and I was wondering if one can pursue neuroscience/fields related to neuroscience at university without an A-Level in Chemistry (or perhaps, even, psychology).

Kings no
Edinburgh no

Bristol possibly
AAA or A*AB including two of the following subjects: Biology or Human Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics or Further Mathematics, Psychology

Manchester possibly
A-level

We require grades AAA-ABB, including two of Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Maths (the Hard Sciences). You must have a grade A in at least one Hard Science and pass the practical assessments in these subjects.

If your grades are AAB or higher, we will accept a grade A in Geography, Psychology, Environmental Studies or PE in place of one of the Hard Sciences.

Subjects with overlapping content are not normally considered as separate A-levels, eg Further Maths is not considered alongside Maths and Human Biology is not considered alongside Biology.

Birmingham no

Nottingham possibly
Two science subjects, one of which must be biology/human biology and/or chemistry. Second science subject can be from biology, chemistry, electronics, geography, geology, human biology, maths, physics or psychology. A pass is required in science practical tests, if assessed separately. GCSE English language and maths at grade 4 are also required.


You can research the rest. You now know its possible, but you need stem subjects.
