Hi Darkbullet007

Sounds like you're studying an interesting and wonderful mix of subjects for your a-levels.

There are various options which you have that you can apply for -

The obvious 3 are the three subjects which you are studying - Physics, Psychology and Chemistry.
With physics, for example, there are various options as to the type of physics you study. Here at hull, we offer three types - Physics, Astrophysics and Theoretical physics. You can find more details about these courses on our website.
With Psychology, again there are various options as you can study it on its own or in combination with another subject such as Criminology. For more details about the degrees which we offer at Hull, click here.
Chemistry can also be studied either on its own or in combination with another subject. For more details on Hull's Chemistry course click here.

It could be that a degree such as Engineering is of interest to you, with various options as to the type of engineering.

It could be that there is a degree which is not related to any of these subjects. There are honestly so many options out there as to what you can study.

My advice would be to consider what you're passionate about and what you enjoy. But also what is going to help you if you have a future career plan and the relevance of that degree to that
Use the UCAS website to look up courses, where they are offered, what are the opportunities available to you etc.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask us

Hope this helps

Hi there,

You may be interested in Natural Sciences courses, offered by universities such as Bath, Cambridge, Durham, Exeter, UCL and Nottingham. This is essentially a course where you can study multiple sciences, so would suit someone like you with a slightly different combination of A-Levels. Universities structure their NatSci courses slightly differently, but at Bath it is essentially a joint honours where you choose a major and minor subject, and also an extra auxiliary module (except if you take physics, as then you have an extra maths module instead). The available subjects at Bath are:
  • Biochemistry
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Biology
  • Pharmacology
  • Environmental science
The subjects you could take are in bold and italics. As you do not have maths A-Level, you wouldn't be able to take physics, and since you don't have biology you can't do biology. Biology is preferred for biochemistry and pharmacology, along with chemistry, but it is not compulsory. You can find details of these modules on this webpage.

Potential auxiliary modules include psychology, management or education, but there are other options available.

If Natural Sciences sounds like a course that appeals to you, please let me know and I can answer any questions you may have
Jessica, a final year NatSci student
