I have no idea what course i would like to do in university…but potentially thinking about doing astrophysics, however i do not do A level maths. I only do A level: chemistry, biology and physics. However in a level physics i am finding the maths pretty easy so far.

Does anyone know any universities that would accept me without doing a level maths?

No, you 100% need to do maths for anything physics-based at university, and preferable FM too.

Could you pick A level maths up now with the support of a tutor or your college? It's still do-able, albeit a fair amount of work.

Or she might be able to do A Level Maths in a year after finishing her A Levels depending on which college she's at and if she'll qualify for funding.

unfortunately not, i can’t stand a level maths, i got 7 at gcse maths. I was good but not amazing at the subject. It’s fine, i guess i’ll have to keep looking for courses thanks for your reply.

You could look at a degree with a Foundation year - there's a lot of maths in Astrophysics though so would you really enjoy it?
