    I know nobody can tell me for sure, but does anybody know how easy/strict Sunderland are about getting into their uni? I need to get 220 ucas points for my course but I think im going to get 200 would Sunderland still maybe let me in? I know some unis do allow it, its advertising and design and I went for an interview with a portfolio if this makes any difference! thanks

    They are a pretty laid back university in my experience , I have known people to get in who didn't quite get the points.
