    hey, I am applying with my A-Level results and was wondering if there was any point applying to a course that has entrance requirements above what my grades are? I got B B C in English, History and Maths. Would universitys offer me a place on BBB course bearing in mind my subjects are seen as stronger subjects or am i pushing my luck lol? Thanks

    Of course there is a point applying to a BBB uni with BBC. As for 'would universities offer me a place', nobody can tell you that. But you have a good chance as long as everything else of your application is sound, certainly.

    How to Avoid Getting 5 Rejections would be a good place to start.

    Try emailing the university's undergraduate admissions or the subject department and they should tell you basically! That is what I have done and some have said they would consider me while others have said no.. it's best to know instead of getting rejected through UCAS and wasting a space.
