    I highly doubt that, they ask for ABB-AAB for first year entry minimum
    I study at Dundee. My offer was ABB for direct entry to year 2 Politics. Typical Dundee offer is BBB for first year. I also work on the clearing helplines. :yep:

    edit: Dundee's English undergrad page, English being one of the subjects the OP mentioned http://www.dundee.ac.uk/study/ug/eng...y-requirements

    I stand corrected.

    Do you think they would let me in second year entry with a CertHE already?

    Perhaps. I would recommend filling out the Clearing form and see what response you get. It's worth a shot. :yep: Simply look for the course you want and if it says 'apply now' click it and fill out the form.

    I'm obviously not expecting to get into oxford or UCL. I'd actually put off applying to uni for a year because I didn't think that any decent universities would take me with my grades, but after doing more general admin work I've decided that I really need something more challenging for my future, just something that stretches me a bit more intellectually.

    I haven't decided on a course yet but I'm thinking history or english, or both (though not many unis seem to offer those subjects as a joint course?)

    So yeah, if you know of any university that isn't horrifically low on the league table, and that generally speaking would take those grades, I'd really appreciate it if you could let me know. I'm in the early stages of searching and so I'm open to a variety of options.

    Thankyou!
    Hi

    I'm at Bournemouth uni and it may not be high on the league tables but I dropped a place at Cardiff for it on results day and I have not once regretted it! If you have any more questions please message me. I'd also recommend Bangor and Aberystwyth.

    I got into Leicester, Lancaster, Kent and Reading for law with BBB. I'm an international student though (I've heard unis drop their entry requirements for international students since they pay more, not sure if this is true) and I had extenuating circumstances (medical reasons) for doing my A levels poorly, but I think that Leicester and Reading especially looked at my overall application more than my grades. They're pretty decent unis in the rankings, so I'd recommend them (no idea about your course though) if you've got nothing else.

    What did you get for AS and what were your predicted grades? If you don't mind my asking..... When did you apply?

    No I don't mind. I didn't have predicted grades; I was taking a gap year and hence applying with my A level grades. I got AABBC for AS (5 subjects). I applied for the 2016-17 intake; I applied in January this year.

    Russell Group is not the be all and end all. I went to a non RG uni and did a masters at a RG uni and
    now im doing a PhD at a RG uni. Essentially you can work your way up, if you get the grades and show the motivation and drive to do well.
