Is there anyone else here who is doing/did biology a level without any other proper sciences (chemistry, physics, maths) and what degrees are you guys looking to do? On one hand I’m really interested in wildlife biology but on the other hand I’ve developed an interest in physiotherapist and nutrition... what other career paths are there with just biology as a science a level?

Hey!

I took A Level Biology with Geography and Graphic Design, in doing design at Uni (which you're probably not interested in), but my peers went into many different fields, if you like wildlife, Ecology and Conservation might be a good subject to go for, or perhaps Environmental Science ( The University of Sheffield is great for these ).

Biology at A Level doesn't restrict you to medical/scientific disciples, at the end of the day its an A Level and a pretty hard one to achieve, Unis will recognise that regardless of the course you're applying to.

Look at Biological Sciences etc at Unis that ask for UCAS points rather than grades -
UWE (Bristol) https://courses.uwe.ac.uk/C110/biological-sciences
Northampton - https://courses.uwe.ac.uk/C110/biological-sciences
Or Psychology -
York - https://www.york.ac.uk/study/undergr...sc-psychology/
but vocational degrees like Nursing, Dental Hygiene, Nutrition will also be open to you.
And of course there are many other degree courses that are outside your A level subjects that you could do - many have no specific subject requirements : https://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/
