    What happens if for what ever reason a student doesn't meet entry requirements?
    Can the student be put on to a lower course such as a HND but in the university they chose providing there is space on the lower course.

    What do you do on results day when accepting an offer do you call the university and tell them you have the requirements and then what happens?

    I'm confused about the whole uni thing :confused: need help


    Just depends on the competitiveness of the course and uni, but 'most' places should still let you in if your a near miss i.e. grade or so.

    hiya, on results day ull either get the grades for ur first choice, get the grade for ur insurance or miss both, here wot happens
    1. (u get grades for firm choice) usually u dont have to do n e thing but celebrate, u dont need to ring the uni, ull be notified by ucas - go and celebrate!
    2.( u get insurance grades but not firm) firstly do u still want to go to ur firm more than ur insurance? if so u try and ring ur firm and see if theyll let u in anyway, if theres still places the chances are they'll let u in since theyd rather have people who have been interested all along rather than clearing students. if there are no places and they wont take you, think hard, do u still want to go to ur insurance, if yes u dont need to do n e thing, UCAS will inform ur uni that uve been rejected by ur firm choice and ucas will inform u that u have a place. If however u decide u dont want to go to your insurance, you need to ring ur insurance and ask them to release you. this leaves u with the option of re-applying next year!
    3. (didnt get grades for firm or insurance) in this instance if ud still rather go to either ur firm or insurance get on the phone and ring them, sweet talk them into t lettin u in. if u cant get in, u can either look for a place thro clearing - dont worry bout this UCAS and ur school will help u or u can withdraw from UCAS and re-apply next year!
    phew sorry its soo long - hope it helps! xx
