Tariff Point Worries Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm worried that I won't be able to get into university with the points I have.
    I want to go to Sunderland University Studying ICT and I have a conditional offer of 260 UCAS points.

    So far I have 2 D's at AS Level and I think I'll get another two D's for A Level.
    And I've just finished my ICT Subsidiary Diploma BTEC course with a Distinction*. I also have 20 extra UCAS points from Working With Others Key skills.

    What if I don't get 260 UCAS points, will they still allow me to go on the course?

    They might allow you - unis can take some students who miss their offers. But they don't have room for everyone so they might not be able to accept you.
