Is environmental management accepted by universities which ask for environmental science as an A level? EM is the only course provided by my sixth form.

As environmental science is such an unusual subject to be offered, I'd be surprised if universities required it as opposed to other science subjects such as biology. Which courses are you looking at, please?

Sorry, I should've been more specific, I mean which degree courses?

BSc (Hons) Environmental Science
So, looking at environmental science courses at a few high ranking unis:

UEA: A level AAB including either Geography, Geology, Mathematics, Economics, Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science or Physics. Science A-levels must include a pass in the practical element. Critical Thinking and General Studies are not accepted.

Edinburgh: A level AAA - ABB Required subjects: A Levels: two of Biology*, Chemistry*, Environmental Science, Geography, Geology, Mathematics*, or Physics* (*include at least one) at B. GCSEs: Mathematics at B or 6 and English at C or 4.

Exeter: A level AAB Must include at least one Science subject. Applicants will receive an offer conditional on attaining AAB. Applicants who achieve AAB are guaranteed entry. Applicants who achieve grades less than AAB but higher than BBB will be considered for entry.

Bristol: A level ABC - AAB Standard offer: AAB including a core science/mathematics subject and another science-related subject; or ABB in three core science/mathematics subjects. Contextual offer: ABC including AB (in any order) in a core science/mathematics (either Analysis and Approaches or Applications and Interpretations) subject and another science-related subject. Please visit: http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/under...extual-offers/ for more information about contextual offers.

Oxford (Earth Sciences): A level A*AA - AAAA Including Mathematics and either Chemistry or Physics. Excluding General Studies (if taken)

Cambridge (Natural Sciences) A level A*A*A Typical A Level offer: A*A*A All Colleges require: A Levels in at least two science/mathematics subjects (please note that some Year 1 options have specific subject requirements) Some Colleges require: AS or A Level in a third science/mathematics subject and/or particular subjects (see individual College websites for details)



It looks to me like you'd be better off adding another science as well as having maths (depending on which unis you want to consider) and another subject of your choice - perhaps environmental management


Hope this helps!
