    Applied for straight Economics at Birmingham, but I'm more inclined to do the MES course. Therefore, I e-mailed the admissions tutor who said I would not meet the entry requirements for MES.

    As far as I was aware the MES entry requirements were AAB (A in maths) which I meet.

    Can anyone confirm this? and advise me about what to do next?

    Yea if the admission tutor said you didn't meet the requirements then I probably wouldn't apply.

    I've already applied for straight economics, and e-mailed her about changing course. She then told me I would not meet the entry requirements (AAB A in maths), but as far as I am aware I meet those comfortably predicted (A*AA). I want to know why I don't meet the entry requirements.

    Then e-mail her exactly this?

    jokes, well maybee they want one A* prediction, after all, the only people with offers so far or most of them have at least one A* prediction but then they are applying oxbridge and unlikely to go to bham.

    It may not be your A-Levels; it could be your GCSEs.

    The website, prospectus or her explanation gives no indication of GCSE results, and even so I would hope mine are more than adequate.
