Essentials when applying to Natural Sciences
- When you are completing your UCAS form, it would be helpful to complete the "Further details" part on your application form and to use the following subject abbreviation codes to select no less than two and no more than four subjects in rank order of preference;
When a candidate is made an offer, the first two preferences are used with the specific A-level entry grades associated with those preferences as outlined at "Essentials and Admissions Process", to construct the offer. These preferences do not tie an applicant to studying these subjects within Natural Sciences. Failing to specify Chemistry as one of the first two preferences will result in the applicant being unable to study Chemistry while at Durham, see the FAQ.
- If your application to study the Natural Sciences degree at Durham is fundamentally different to other degrees that you are applying for, please submit an substitute personal statement directly to Durham in a timely fashion.
