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.

The only people who can say are Northumbria.
You could also offer them the option of AS or A level Maths in a year or see if they do a foundation course.

What do you mean pass in maths? Is it part of BTEC applied science? If I knew this, maybe I would have applied for BTEC applied science rather than a levels so then I wouldn’t have got ill. There were no issues with A levels at first but only when I got sick and was unable to manage my illness. Science is not my strong point though.

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?

Tbf I think they would be more interested in core maths. Most Astro courses want A or A* Maths as I recall but you can look them up.
Talk to them. I cant say what they are thinking.
