    They should let you in with a*ab, as long as you have a couple of enrichment subjects. I'm at Lancaster now, and have friends with grades way below the boundaries. Obviously, this depends on intake, and how many people apply/get in, but this should be much better next year, as if people have got in this year with below boundary grades (after how competitive it was) you should be fine
    You will have to try and get A's or A*'s in English and history though, for this to work!! Good Luck!!
    Ah that's good to know What do you mean by enrichment subjects - things like Critical Thinking?
    Yeah, when I went to an open day they said in the English talk they were open to being slightly flexible with lower grades, depending on how many places they had left etc.
    Yes I can see how I'd have to do well in those subjects - however, I'm pretty worried about my English Literature. I got an A overall at AS but got a B in the exam (full marks in the coursework though! ). I'm retaking the exam in January but I'm still not overly confident I'll be able to get an A in it. Do you think there's any chance at all that they possibly might let me in if I didn't get an A in English? From your experience?

    I've applied for Marketing Management I'm hoping if I get an offer it will be AAB like it states - the course looks brilliant!!! Anyone else applied for a business related course?

    I'm currently studying at Lancaster (only a 1st year but I still know the place and my departments pretty well) if anyone has any questions. The main thing i'd stress, as a lot of people didn't realise this when they arrived, YOU STUDY 3 SUBJECTS IN 1ST YEAR. This is different to other universities. This depends on your chosen subjects (a Psychology major, for example, can only choose 1 other subject) but in general this is the rule. Just something to consider when making a decision. IMO it's a good thing because it gives you more flexibility but *shrugs*

    Ooh so it hasn't taken that long really - last year I applied on the 14/11/10 and only got an offer mid January!
    I applied on the 10/11/11 so maybe it won't be long until I hear back
    Will it be your firm?

    I'm guessing it depends on the different departments? Plus last year I can imagine had more competition. What have you applied for? I hope you get an offer soon I think it will, it looks amazing! :love: will it be yours?

    I've applied for Law :-) It was my firm last year and I missed it by 2 UMS I had my heart completely set on it so I wanted to go in 2012 rather than go to a different university
    My boyfriend goes there so I spend weekends at the university, it's amazing! It's the only place I've applied for and if my resits don't go well then I have 3 other choices left on ucas if I need them
    What grades do you need/are predicted?

    Ohhh that's ashame I'm scared something like that will happen, so I'm going to work so hard, I have such an incentive now! I know a girl who applied for Lancaster law early October and she hasn't heard anything so you shouldn't worry too much I really liked Sheffield... but the city university put me off, I just love campus unis! I went to Scotland the other week and we drove down the M6 and got too excited when we went past Lancaster
    Track hasn't updated yet, but the standard offer is ABB and that's what I'm predicted, so hopefully I can achieve it! I'm assuming you need AAA or something for law?

    Yeah I looked at Sheffield last year but I really didn't want to live in a big city! Well I've applied for Law and Law with Criminology, I think I want to do the combined Law degree as it seems to interest me more. Law is AAA and the combined with Criminology is AAB
    So I just have 3 exams in January to bump all my B's up to A's and then hopefully won't need to do any in June
    Best of luck! Hope to see you next year!

    Congrats. Let us know when you get your offer, I'd be interested to see what it is.

    When I applied for Maths I got in with ABB (I'm now in my 2nd year) so I'd be interested to see how much they have changed in 2 years.
