    Depends, did you have a good PS?

    Also, have you done any work experience - have any references from employers included in the application?
    Did you take any (non qualification or qualification) courses outside school?
    Did you get good grades for your GCSEs?

    All that will determine if you get accepted despite not being able to reach the conditional offer.

    They are generally very strict! Hertfordshire used to be quite lenient towards UCAS points but since last year they have been really strict on UCAS points. I would advise you to just do you best and try to get those 260 points because the economics degrees at herts are quite popular. It's hard to say and really depends on the degree, generally I'd think if you are just 10 points of they would still take you but if there are loads of people to take the place for you then they will look at all the other 260s first.

    I have a conditional for Herts that requires 45 merits on the Access course.

    I emailed the Humanities Admissions tutor and asked if there was any flexibility at all and he said no!
    He said that they have had record numbers of applicants and so they are asking for the highest grades that they can and they are sticking to them, there are no allowances at all :-(
