    ... will accept someone with 240 points (3 Cs) on a Sociology, Criminology, or combined course? Obviously no-one can be completely sure, but if anyone has any suggestions, I'd be most appreciative.

    Royal Holloway through clearing (they did for me with same grades). Also, social policy at York through clearing. There are lots of unis who have sociology in clearing.

    Quite a few places have quite low offers for sociology generally. I think Hull wants about 240 points too, and I'm sure there are plenty of others.

    Most universities with "metropolitan" in the name, I imagine.

    I think in terms of getting an offer through the initial period when applying, your best bet would be the post-92 ex-polytechnic universities. But you'd most likely be able to get an offer from a plate glass university or, if you're lucky, a red brick university during UCAS Extra/Clearing.

    So I'd say apply to one red brick uni (within reason, don't go for one that is too oversubscribed), one plate glass uni, and three post-92 unis. If you're not happy with the offers you get/you get no offers, then check out what's on UCAS Extra and/or wait until Clearing. You can reject all of your offers and 'trade up' if you see something better.
