    I only have 12 (4) distinctions and 9 (3) merits with only one essay left and im feeling absolutely put down as UWE wants 30 merits. Does anybody know if it's even possible for me to be accepted anywhere? I have no idea where to contact about Clearing.

    how many credits is your final essay worth?

    as it stands they have asked for 30 merits, and you have 21, 12 of which are above merit.

    assuming your final essay is worth 3, you could have 24, 12 (or 15) being distinction. my point is you're not that far off, and the distinctions might count for something. but you can't guess, you should contact the institution directly to ask whether you might be considered with your grades.

    best of luck
