Not the grades Watch
More about Northumbria University
I want to study astrophysics with physics at Northumbria, but I’m doing BTEC applied science and I got a pass in maths and a distinction in physics, they ask for a b equivalent in both maths and physics, i have it in physics, but maths had 2 involved, maths and statistics I got a distinction in statistics, but a pass in maths so it was an overall pass, and I was wondering if I do an EPQ in astrophysics and got top marks would that be sufficient enough to help get onto the course.
You could also offer them the option of AS or A level Maths in a year or see if they do a foundation course.
Considering its Astro and that is niche then I consider it unlikely. You can look though.
The issue is more whether you get to do Astro at all rather than taking a year off.
do you think they will take both my maths grades into account, instead of just the overall?
Talk to them. I cant say what they are thinking.
