I shot myself in the foot by not doing A level mathematics, and instead took biology, psychology and chemistry.

I have achieved grades of A*AB, and have gotten Durham, Loughborough, Nottingham, and LIBF as my choices but I'm unsure what I should pick for a 5th. I would like to cast a wide net by sending all possible applications out.

Despite surpassing their requirements, I'm still worried about not getting offers especially due to my subject choices not being optimal for finance.

If they really wanted A-level Maths they would make it a requirement.

That's a good point. I just know it's a useful subject to have, although many friends have told me the math isn't very complex.

Thanks for that though, very calming to hear haha.

Do you have any suggestions to find another uni for my final choice?

Can't be overly maths-heavy if they only want around a grade 6 GCSE, tbh.

No particular suggestions though McGinger has a couple of sensible possibilities.

Durham. I didn't take maths at A level so they needed an A at GCSE, which is OK because I managed to get one.
