    Hello there, today I was reading the City University prospectus, and came across a "foundation Degree" which seemed interesting. I'm currently doing AS, and am predicted "B" grades in Mathematics and Politics. I did a Physics AS last year, and endeed up with a "D" grade. I am also doing a BTEC. would the University accept me with these grades? I need 160 UCAS points (I think).

    At AS Level:
    A-60
    B-50
    C-40
    D-30
    E-20

    At A Level:
    A*-140
    A-120
    B-100
    C-80
    D-60
    E-40

    For BTECs I think it is similar.

    So if you get those Grades at A Level then yes.

    OK, so could I get into the course by just doing AS?

    Foundation courses are designed for people who for whatever reason didnt get high enough grades for a place on the full degree course, but who still show potential OR overseas students who need a longer 'run in' to cope with a UK University degree.

    You need completed A levels. If you want to know whether a Uni will accept your predicted grades, then email them and ask them.
