    So i've applied through UCAS extra for English and Media Studies to Leeds Trinity University College.
    I recently had to leave my former Uni, and only achieved 240 points at a level.
    So my reapplying options have been slim. (damm ucas grades going up every year)
    Leeds trinitys requirements are 240 for my course, however when I was checking out the league table, Trinity stands at 26th in the guardian for English.
    I'm abit confused at why a Uni so high up would only offer 240, and do i really stand a chance with my a level grades, as sits among some of the Unis on the league table which ask for a's and b's in their English courses.
    I managed to get a B in media and a c in English at A level, and most other courses I've applied to have accepted this, I'm just a bit concerned and confused that maybe I've applied for a uni that's a bit to far out of my league.
    (Most other unis i applied too are usually 50-90 on the league table)

    Can anyone give me some advice or sense of ease?
    I'm panicking they may come back to me demanding an A or something, :confused:

    Yeah i guess so, just a bit set back that i might not be good enough for a uni thats in the 20's for English.
    Then again if i get in i will be VERY VERY happy about this fact!

    But i was thinking if i already have the grades and qualifications already...would i have more chance of being considered?
