    Hi everybody! My name is Alejandra, and I'm from Mexico.

    I currently applied to 3 courses at Kent University just before Christmas. But! I want to have backup choices of course. If everybody could list me from 1 to 5 choices that would be awesome!

    Since I am from Mexico, my grades are from 0 to 10.
    My grades are 60% 8s and 7s, which I checked and that's As and Bs. The other 40% are 10s and a few 9s, which are A* and A.
    Overall, my final grade from High School was an 8.0, that's a A.

    I think I have better chances at getting into an University with entry requirements of AAA - AAB. So, if you could give me options with this entry requirements that would be awesome.

    Thank you in advance!

    Why would you apply to three different courses? Particularly at the same university lol. They'll begin to wonder if you have a genuine interest in the subject. Unless they're similar-ish courses.

    What are you looking to study? You can check subject specific rankings of universities in the UK on google.

    York is a very good uni and a typical York offer is AAB I think What course are you applying for?

    York is also a very beautiful, historical city. You won't find a prettier city to live in.

    If we knew what you're applying to it would help.

    Why did you apply to 3 courses at the same uni? I'm not even sure if my sixth form would have allowed it. Even if they're similar, your personal statement won't fit them all perfectly and you only get to write one personal statement saying why you want to study that subject. And they're likely to be in the same department, so the admissions tutors might so your other applications and question your passion for each of your choices.

    haha don't worry I applied to the same course, just with the year abroad. I applied to Kent to the English and American Literature and Creative Writing, also with the year abroad, and the course without Creative Writing just the Lit. one.

    As you can see I wanna study Lit and Creative Writing.

    Sorry! Forgot to say to which courses I was applying to. Don't worry. I applied to the English and American Literature course, then the same one but with Creative Writing, and then the same just with the approved year abroad.
    So, in reality I just applied to the Lit course, and the Lit with Creative Writing course (including the one with the approved year abroad).

    University of east anglia (uea) is good for creative writing. Their typical offers are abb-aab i think. But maybe aaa, especially seeing how competitive it is, and if thats what you're predicted.
