I was wondering if I could take any subject for A-level and then change what I do at Uni because the school I go to doesn't do criminology but I really want to do that course.

You don’t need a criminology a level to do criminology at university - people who do don’t have a better chance of getting a place either! Honestly you can take any a levels you’d like, but maybe consider sociology if you think you’d like it

Do you want to study Criminology at university? If so, there are no specific A level requirements but it's best to check entry requirements online. Consider studying subjects similar to A level Criminology like Psychology or Sociology, but it's completely up to you.

They only really matter if the courses you want to apply to have either essential or preferred subjects listed.

If they just have a points or grade requirement, e.g. AAB, then you can usually take any combination, (excluding general studies).

Some universities take students on with UCAS points I think, and usually only one subject matters. criminology would probably need biology or maybe possibly something like psychology or sociology, I'm not sure though. I would say look at the UCAS website and some uni's as well. Not sure 🧐 Good luck👍

Hi Theeps05

Usually for a criminology degree there are no specific A level requirements and even if there are it is unlikely studying A level criminology would be one of the requirements. If you know what universities you are interested in you could look at their requirements for a criminology degree and see what A levels would be the best option if they have a list of preferred A levels.
