As long as the degree you apply for doesn't ask for another specific subject, you're completely fine. You can go on university websites and check out various degrees. Under 'entry requirements' you'll find the grades that they require and any specific subjects (usually the case with STEM degrees). As long as you take the the necessary subjects, you can fill up the rest of your A levels with whatever you want, including Sociology.

Hi there,

This all depends on what stem degree you are looking at doing. If you want to study maths, physics or most engineering degrees, then you will be required to have a maths a level. However, if the course you are looking at does not specify a compulsory subject, then your choices wont effect your application as long as you get the grades or points to meet your offer. Although technical subjects will help you throughout your degree. But if you're taking biology and chemistry that covers you and if you enjoy sociology and you don't specifically need maths then go for it.

Kind Regards
