    Ok this may sound a bit stupid but here goes. I'm applying for science and engineering foundation course at Queen Mary's. On their website it says the entry requirements are:

    "For students studying A levels, offers will normally be in the range 200-240 points (depending upon the subjects being studied to advanced level). Offers will normally be higher for students who have not studied science subjects at an advanced level."

    When it says "in the range of 200 - 240", does it means I have to get within 200 - 240 or does it meen the minimum requirement ranges between 200 - 240 because I know some people who have been rejected from uni's because there were 'too good' for them.

    Just to add, I am not studying a science subject at A level.

    Thanks

    You can get more than 240 ucas points but the offer range will be 200-240 ucas points based on what subjects you have done etc.

    It means they'll ask for a minimum of something in the range 200-240. If you then get 260, you'll be fine.

    If you're studying a science subject, you will receive an offer of 200 UCAS points. If you are not studying sciences you will receive an offer of 240 UCAS points.

    If you get (or are predicted) higher then this will not make a difference as those are the minimum grades. However, people are rejected for many reasons so even if your grades are high you may not get an offer. You need a good PS and reference too.
