BSc Medical Biochemistry / Entry requirements
Year of entry: 2020
Practical skills are a crucial part of science education and therefore there will be a requirement to pass the practical element of any science A Level taken.
Where applicants are applying for science and related degrees, this is likely to be made explicit in the offers you will receive.
We require grades AAA-ABB, including Chemistry and one of Biology, Physics and Maths (the Hard Sciences). You must have a minimum of grades AB in at least two Hard Sciences and pass the practical assessments in these subjects.
If your grades are AAB or higher, we will accept a grade A in Geography, Psychology, Environmental Studies or PE in place of the second Hard Science. Subjects with overlapping content are not normally considered as separate A-levels, eg Further Maths is not considered alongside Maths and Human Biology is not considered alongside Biology.
General Studies is welcomed but not normally included as part of the offer.
Unit grade information
We require a minimum of grade C (or 4 in the newly reformed GCSEs in England) in English Language and Mathematics.
