    So I just got a conditional offer from Bournemouth university to study multimedia journalism, I'm really excited as it's my first choice! However, I'm really uncertain that I'll get the required UCAS points...do you think this is a real problem? How strict are they when you get your final grades?

    The leniency on grades depends on the University. A lot of them still accept applicants if they miss the offer by a grade or so. You could ask them yourself, or they might have information about that on their website.

    is yours 320 points? because I read that it's possible that they'll accept 300 but its not certain... so I've emailed to ask if my AS which I dropped counts.. because I got a C in that... would make getting the remaining 280 easier, and as I need an A in English, I'd only need CC in the others if that is the case...

    no idea if this was helpful but :L

    I was wondering how lenient they are to.

    My offer is at the lower end of what they accept, so I think they'll be less lenient with me and more leninet with someone whose offer was well above the minimum, so if they dropped a grade, they will still have at least the minimum offered for that course.

    I hope that makes sense ie my course is 260-320 points. I am predicted 260 points, if I drop a grade then my points won't meet their minimum. But if you're predicted 320 and you drop to *only* 300/280, then they're more likely to accept you because your grades are still within their accepted range for that course. But they don't give everyone the minimum offer, else people on course for As will slack a bit and may not put 100% focus in. Also a higher offer means you're more likely to put it as your firm choice.
