im bothered about this coz i need 3 B's to get on a physio course but i doubt will get the grades. im taking a gap year though and am getting experience in healthcare. would they allow 2 c's and a B do u think or something like that or are they strict
Yeah, it all depends on the course and the university. It's simple supply and demand, if they don't have enough applicants they can't afford to be too picky.
BCC may be pushing it, which subjects are you doing? Usually if the universities are nice they'd let you drop one grade BBC and let you have the place. The other alternative is to try and work harder and ensure you get the results. Good luck.
Physio is quite a competitive course and I doubt they will let you in with BCC, maybe BBC though. I have a friend who achieved AAAB at AS level and was rejected from all the uni's she applied to for physio except Kings, so I think they are quite picky.
It depends on the person as well as the grades my mate got turned down on my course as they said they didn't think he showed enough interest in the subject to be able to cope. I know they have taken people in with less than the 220 entry points though.
it depends on the uni but generally yes because of the competition.
I agree with all that has been, it depends on you, your course and the uni, among others.
However, what might be worth doing is to find the average alevel score for your course at the uni you want to go to - it will be in the times subjects league tables. If its average alevel score is BBB then it means you'll probably need it. But sometimes unis give "standard offers" which are higher than the results most people get, so although they might offer you BBB most people might get BBC. If this is the case they might me more inclined to take you.
What if your subject is not listed in the times? Like mine for example Multimedia and Internet Technology. Its in the school of computing so does it come under computer science?
It's ok found it - H620 - as an H6 it's classed as electronic engineering by HESA and UCAS - which means it comes in the Times league tables under Electrical and Electronic Engineering
oh sorry didnt read other post...there you go
Your gap year will help; but try and really focus on your exams.
