    Hi, i got a letter from ucas telling me that in order to get the course i really want, I need to get 2 distinctions and a merrit. But in the first year i only got 3 merrits (for media).

    And this year i'm looking to be getting 2 distinctions and a merrit.

    So if i get the 2 distinctions and a merrit this year, will i get into the course? or will the 3 merrits from last year set me back.


    M,M,M + D,D,M = ?,?,?

    Thanks

    Probably, because there is only one "r" in "merit".

    If you get the grades overall to get in, despite what you got in your first year, you will gain your place.

    You can't get MMM in the first year. The most you can get is in the region of 162 ucas points, which if memory serves is, something like MPP.

    Depends on your units, for example I need a D, D to get to Uni, and got four D's, a M and a P last year. I do a 12 unit award, so need at least 4 D's and a M this year to get my overall grade DD.

    I can't see how you can possibly end up with DDM unless they aggregrate all the scores over the 2 years.

    Aim for DDD - doesnt matter if they want DDM.
