Business Degree at Northumbria

    • Thread Starter

    Im thinking of applying to Northumbria for either a business degree or business with marketing degree. However, I'm only just starting my second year at A level and I achieved BCC last year. I understand that if I get the same results this year I'll get around 240-260 UCAS points. I need 320 for Business and 280 for Business with marketing. I'm confident I can go up a grade or two but if I fall short, what would my chances of getting in be if I topped up my UCAS points with an EPQ, do they look down on this as apposed to getitng the points with your A levels?

    Just in general, what do you think my chances of getting in are?

    What are your subjects? I'm thinking of applying for business at Northumbria too, I have ABC for AS but I'm resitting my A2 year as I ended up with BCD in August and wasn't sure what I wanted to do at this time.
