    If the course is under-subscribed yes. If the course is over-subscribed you would need a cracking PS but its still very managable

    Yep I think you've got a good chance. Your subjects are good for audiology I would have thought. Make sure you do a damn good PS and include all your experience. As long as your choices include a couple of safety unis that you would actually like to go to it's worth the shot. Fingers crossed and good luck!

    Depends on how competive the course is and uni.I got a conditional offer from leicester of BBB and am only predicted BCC!
    You are only 1 grade off the requirement anyway,so that one uni would probably offer or consider you a place if your reference and statement are both good.

    I don't think it's very popular (i don't mean any offence hear), i've never heard of anyone doing that course before.
    That works in your favour though, i applied for an unpopular course and have 5 offers and 1 interview now

    Your predicted grades are only a grade below those conditions and I don't think audiology is competitive, so if you have a good personal statement and reference, you should be in with a good chance, especially as you take relevant subjects and have relevant work experience.

    You won't know if a course is oversubscribed. Some universities publish the applicant success rates for past years on their websites, so if you can find those, it'll give you a rough indication of the competition you're up against.
