    I applied to three universities : Manchester met, Brighton and Huddersfield.
    I received two inviting me for interviews however Manchester rejected me without interview, I'm slightly confused as to why they have done this as I have more than enough ucas points within all relevant subjects and thought it would be harder to get into Brighton...is there anything I can do or do I have to just accept their decision as Manchester was my 1st choice?

    You just have to accept their decision. They must have asked you to interview or rejected you for a reason. Maybe they think you've got the grades but your personal statement isn't up to scratch?

    You have to accept the decision, but you can ask for feedback on why you got rejected (just send the admissions tutor a nice email)

    For those courses dont they require you send them a portfolio? if so that could have been the reason. I think for the arts grades/ucas points are less important.
