    Or, would they?

    I've got a conditional offer of BBC for Biomedical science at Kent, and I want to go SOOOO BADLY.
    But there really is little hope of me getting a C in French, I got a low D last year and am retaking both AS exams in it. But it's French, it's nothing to do with science.
    Do you reckon they'd let me take the course next year with BBD, I know there's no chance them taking me if I get below Bs in my sciences.

    My brother got onto his course at Exeter with BCC when they were asking for BBB or BBC, but that was a while ago ..

    I know it depends on the school or faculty or whoever is in charge of all this, I just want to know if it's likely/possible/no chance.

    They can, but whether or not they will none of us can really say. Feel free to ask if you need any help with the French though

    As you said, it really depends. Maybe you should ring them up to check (but even if they say yes now they may change their mind on results day). If that course regularly goes into clearing then it's likely they may let you.

    it depends on the university really

    i didn't meet the points requirement of mine but because I got an A in one of my subjects they still accepted me

    but there is a possible chance =]

    It's possible, yeah. Depends on how competitive the course is, how many students miss their grades this year, etc. So there's hope, but I wouldn't count on it so you don't get your hopes up! Best of luck with the french

    Do you know how'd I'd find out of it goes into clearing often? Will UCAS have that sort of information or should I ask the university, I'll probably e-mail them questions anyway.

    But this course is ranked "number one in student satisfaction for biomedical science" or something like that, I guess I'll just have to work hard for the summer exams!

    Sorry I don't know. Maybe search on Google for a list of clearing for last year :dontknow:. Though obviosuly it can vary year on year.
