I want to study politics at Bristol University but I don't have an essay a level which is required. I studied maths, bio and chem and got 3 A*. I also got a 9 in history and english lang at GCSE so I am not incapable of writing. Is there any point applying or will I automatically be rejected? When I picked my subjects I really wasn't sure what I wanted to do and I discovered I don't actually have a strong passion for science and maths so I really want to study politics. Due to being autistic I need to go to Bristol university as that is where I grew up and I can't cope with too much change at once.

If you don't have the minimum required entry qualifications, which in this case includes an essay-based A level, then your application is going to be automatically rejected. No exceptions.

Why did you do all science/maths A levels when you wanted to do politics at university - did you change your mind about your degree late on or something?

Have you though of doing an essay subject this year within a year to get over this. Alternatively look into Bath, Exeter or Cardiff which are fairly close so you can commute daily

McGinger Given your knowledge of Bristol admissions is there anything you can suggest. Is there a foundation year or anything.

Have a look at : http://www.bristol.ac.uk/arts/study/foundation/ - this would be accepted for a Social Science degree.
Other than that, UWE - no subject requirements - https://courses.uwe.ac.uk/L290/polit...onal-relations
