    Hey there,
    I really want to get into loughboroughs foundation year for electrical engineering(I don't have a maths Alevel).
    They need predicted grades of BBB, and mine will be(at best) BBC and maybe even BCD, I do chemistry, physics and classical civilisation and it's chemistry that's letting me down!
    Do I have a chance of getting in if I apply?

    It's very difficult to tell but you can always apply and find out if you're set on this uni.

    (Original post by zainyyyyy)
    check the applicants per place ratio and if its low then you might have a chance. Also you can ask your teachers to boost your predicted up or just ask your parents to call in.

    And you can just go through adjustment
    You probably mean Clearing. You can only go through Adjustment if you have a Firm Offer which you then exceed on results day.

    Also, asking your parents to call is the least good way of getting a place at a university...
