Are my A-levels relevant enough for me to do a Politics degree?Watch
For my A-levels, I have chosen Media, Public Services and Physics (along with Welsh baccalaureate) . I just wanted to know if these are just too different to what is taught in a Politics degree, and, I would like to know how prepared I will be if compared to someone who has chosen social science A-levels such as Philosophy or Sociology? I honestly feel like there's not much places to go in terms of doing a degree with these A-levels and feel very stuck in that regard. Any help is appreciated.
Do some background reading about politics to increase your knowledge and you should be fine.
Check entrance requirements for the unis concerned and if they are non specific you should be fine.
Most Unis will accept an A level/BTEC combo - check before you apply. Some may require an 'essay based subject' but others wont necessarily want any relevant subject at all. They wont insist on Politics A level as this isnt taught in all schools, and there will be introductory units at the start of the degree to bring everyone up to the same level - so dont worry about not having studied 'Politics' on its own before, it wont be a problem.

Other subjects to consider- Social Policy, Criminology, Law - or one of these as a joint subject with Politics.
