After gcse results day I discovered that I couldn’t do biology A-level since I got a 4 in maths. My initial plan was to do geography and biology A-level to give me options to do a career that focused on environmental sciences or ecology. However since I can’t do Biology A-level I decided to do Geography, politics and film studies A-level which are all subjects I’m interested in but unfortunately don’t lead to any career. I’m also worried that I don’t really have a future since I virtually can’t do anything surrounding the environment or ecology without biology A-level. I have looked into environmental consultancy but I’m not convinced that it’s right for me, I seriously need some advice!!

Serious replies only please

What about btec?

Why would you pick politics and film studies?

These are your choices.
Resit GCSE and then do A levels next year.
Do applied science BTEC?


Just get good grades then you can apply for environmental with a foundation year.


Alternatively some environmental degrees will take geography only.


Nottingham will take just geography or offer a foundation year.

A level offer
ABB-BBB
Required subjects
at least one of the following preferred subjects at A level; biology, chemistry, physics, geography, geology, maths, environmental science or equivalent


Science with Foundation Year

Home, EU and international students

If you have achieved high grades in your A levels (or equivalent qualifications) but do not meet the current subject entry requirements for direct entry to your chosen undergraduate course, you may be interested in our one year science foundation programme. Applicants must also demonstrate good grades in previous relevant science subjects to apply. You are guaranteed a place on selected undergraduate courses if all progression requirements are met.

They also take BTEC.

So have done looked into it and as you can see plenty of unis will take just Geography as the one science. Other unis offer a foundation course and others require 2 science.

There are enough that take just one science and geography can be that science.

You have nothing to worry about.
A bit of research could have told you that.
You can always choose foundation and you will be taught science.
That would open up ecology courses.
You can always resit the year.


Do the research , get good grades and start making more informed choices.
