    Hi everyone, I got an offer last year for Geog BSc at Sussex Uni for this years entry, and as I'm worrying about my results now I thought I'd just check what the requirements are . Sussex is my insurance, on UCAS it says I need:

    VCE/GCE A-level

    Grades BBB

    Alternative conditions

    A minimum of 300 UCAS Tariff points

    must be obtained from 3 GCE/VCE A-levels

    Notes on Tariff offers are on the back of this letter


    So does that mean I have to get at least BBB or higher, or that I could get ABC (using the 300 tariff points)??

    My offer just states 'BBB', the only problem is-- if i have ****ed up, i'll end up with 'AAC'

    But i won't have ****ed up...will I?

    hmm, I was wondering about mine - it says Attain AAB at GCE A-Level.

    but they also accept 2 As's in place of an A-level and also accept general studies.

    So, I have a C in physics As... if I got an A in my general studies As, would that count as a B at A-Level? I've been wondering this for ages. Not that it matter much

    Is that Sussex that accepts general studies?

    Does it mention anywhere in your personal offer letter that you can use 2 ASs in place of an A-level, and does your offer state that it excludes General Studies? Personal offers can be different from the standard university offer, so just because the university accepts General Studies and will take 2 ASs in place of 1 A-level, that doesn't mean they'll accept it as part of your offer. If you don't get AAB from your 3 proper A-levels but get an A in General Studies, you could always use it as a bargaining tool though.

    hmm, well im studying economics at uni, and I have an 'A' in that... Just chemistry could go horribly wrong... surelly AAC is better than BBB with an 'A' in what am studying. If I get the 'C' I'll just have to ring the uni and blag it, maybe mention AS grade in General Studies..

    Well, in terms of points, AAC is better than BBB, but if your offer just states grades, you'd still have missed it and therefore your university wouldn't be obliged to accept you. It will depend on how many others miss their offer and what subject the C was in.
