    I've got an interview for my first choice uni coming up in a couple of weeks. I honestly can't see myself studying anywhere else but there, I really really need an offer.

    Problem is, it's looking increasingly like I may not meet the average entry grades they require. This is worrying as I really don't know what i'll do if i don't get in here.

    Now, the course isn't an academic course as such, I want to study Film Production so hopefully most of the offer will be based on my film work, of which I have done plenty over the last few years.

    I was just wondering if it's a good idea to address grades in an interview, basically express my passion to study at the university despite the fact i may not meet the grades they need. Or is it something I shouldn't bring up?

    Thanks a lot, any help will be appreciated

    It wont hurt to mention that you're worried about meeting their standard offer grades and asking how they deal with people who miss their offers in August and whether they're more flexible with people who have picked them as firm. It's a common concern and should be something admissions staff will be happy to explain to you.
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
