    If that is the case they have a legal obligation to give you an offer. Call up the University in the morning, somebody other than clearing: somebody important. If they refuse, then call up UCAS again, explain what you've said the best you can- your offer was 260 points, it did not mention a specific like they are now saying and you believe they are breaching the contract. Then ask for any advice.

    The online prospectus for the Bournemouth BSc Computing states that you need 3 A Levels (doesn't mention AS Levels) or equivalents in "Relevant subjects: Computing, IT or ICT, Sciences". Given that you're weren't doing any of these at full A Level, it seems strange that they made you the offer in the first place. Maybe that's the sticking point now? When you first applied, were you planning to take Computing to A Level?

    They do know I was only doing computing AS (and it was explained in my personal statement as the college was no longer able to run the course). I assumed I still got through initially as I was doing maths, and even if you exclude the AS level I still have enough points to get in.

    I'm off to bed now and will ring Bournemouth in the morning. I am very grateful to everyone for all your help so far, I was a bit of a wreck earlier!

    Right, update time. This is quite long so bare with me.

    When I originally rang up UCAS to ask why I had been rejected they told me it was because I didn't have a C grade in Maths. Turns out this wasn't right at all, and the person I was talking to was reading my insurance uni conditions instead...

    The person I spoke to at Bournemouth obviously did not have much knowledge on the subject so just echoed what UCAS had said without actually checking my conditions. So I never needed the grade at all!

    I found this out when I rang up Bournemouth in the morning and spoke to a very nice person who knew what they were talking about. After a long conversation they found out the ACTUAL reason for rejecting me was because one of my grades had not been entered into UCAS Track from results day! Crazy, I know....

    So they asked me to scan in my results document and email it to them to confirm my results, that has now been done and my place has been secured. No thanks to UCAS at all though, since they just made me panic even more than I already was.I was tempted to ring up UCAS to complain, but I'm just glad this is all over now. Thanks for all your advice and help, I think I might be sticking around here for a bit longer.

    Phew! Well, it's a great outcome and I'm really thrilled for you, even though it's been a long haul! Hope you have a fabulous time. Do stick around - this time next year, maybe you could prevent someone else going through the same thing.
