If thats the WJEC Diploma in Criminology, then I suggest you dont do it.
It focuses mostly on 'True Crime', it isnt that 'academic' and consequently some Unis will not accept it.

You really would be better off doing three straight A levels - psychology, biology and sociology would be fine.
Many Unis dont specify any particular subjects for Criminology :
Leicester : https://le.ac.uk/courses/criminology-bsc/2021
Bristol : https://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/unde...c-criminology/
York : https://www.york.ac.uk/study/undergr...a-criminology/
Winchester (including joint subject degrees) : https://www.winchester.ac.uk/study/u...fb-search-form

Hi there, most universities don't require you to study criminology at college to study it a degree level. I did the level 3 criminology at college and it's equivalent to a levels in terms of UCAS points. I got accepted into all my options and i'm now doing it at uni. Just pick the subjects that interest you the most because most unis look at the grades you receive rather than the subjects

The perfect combo would have Maths & stats instead of Biology, but it's fine - and don't worry about the Criminology L3

I’m doing a criminology degree right now and i’ve done totally different a levels including a btec so don’t worry too much about it xx but a great tip is to keep at least one essay based subject to keep your options open since some BA criminology courses preferred to have an essay based a level
