Cambridge NatSci with only two science A Levels?Watch
Would I stand a decent chance without maths or physics? Even if it was a good idea to switch to maths from lit this far through the year, I wouldn't want to. I don't like maths. I got four 9s, five 8s (I think) and one 7 at gcse (8 in maths, for the record), and I'm confident that I'll get at least A*AA at a-level, hopefully more. This is mostly me just wondering how seriously I should take the idea of Cambridge NatSci.
Thanks in advance!
There is no longer a route for students without A-level Maths to my knowledge, so that is more or less required now. There is possibly a route for those with AS Maths who do some extra work over the summer, but I really doubt you will be able to make a serious application without it, since all first year students need to do maths in NatSci first year and the former route for those without maths has been restructured and now assumes some of the A-level curriculum from what I understand. Also I gather in that course you would be doing mathematical work (or needing to understand mathematics beyond mere descriptive statistics at least implicitly) even in biological modules beyond first year, so if you don't like maths it is debatable whether a course like NatSci would be suited to your interests in any case.
