This year has been a tough one when it comes to uni applications. Dealing with the pandemic, lockdowns, changes in procedures and cancellations of exams has all been a real challenge for students and universities alike.

Admissions tutors work at universities to look through applications and decide which applicants should get a place at that institution. They're a fountain of knowledge about university admissions, what to do on your application and how to put yourself in the best possible position to get onto the course you want. Basically - super useful people to ask questions about your application to!

If you applied to uni this year, are worried about Results Day, or are looking to apply next year, what would you ask an admissions tutor if you could?

I'm working on a video where admissions staff will provide answers to some of the big questions around this year's admissions process. If there's anything you want to ask - this is your opportunity to get your questions put directly to the experts. It's also a chance to address any rumours that you may have heard about this year's admissions and get clarity.

I'm particularly interested in the ways in which this year is different from previous years and what that means for uni applications but I'm open to other suggestions. What would you like to know and what sorts of questions should we be asking?

Will you put less emphasis on grades and more emphasis on other things this year?
Will you be more lenient to those who don't have the entry requirements but still applied to the course anyway?
