How lenient are York regarding meeting your conditional offer grades?Watch
Is it worth putting York as my firm choice? I really want to go there but realistically if I come out in June with AAB and not AAA will they still consider me or is it a wasted application, especially as History is a popular course?
Having said that, the firm/insurance is exactly for this purpose; I'd put York down as my firm being optimistic about what grades I'd get. Work hard and you'll get in; you might get in even if you don't make the grades, but pick your insurance as somewhere you'd like to go to, too.
My boyfriend applied for Pure Mathematics last year with ABB. If you average a point below the conditions, it says on the site that they may be willing to take you. You could probably get in still with AAB, but try and go for that AAA
I'm in my fist year at York doing History and Politics. It does really depend on the intake for that year but I really wouldn't worry. I've found that York are more interested in your application, personal statement etc. than your final grades. I know people on my course with A*AA, AAB and ABB with some not even with the A in History. I would try to get AAA as I know for English this year they were so over subscribed they didn't take anyone who got below AAA. You never know what will happen my friend got A*AB when she was adament she would get ABB. Good luck!
Rejected with AAB 7 UMS points away from the 3rd A (in Maths).
Worth putting as a firm if you've got a good backup that you'll definitely get into.
I'm applying for politics at York and am realistically expecting ABB (hoping for AAB). Were there many like you that didn't make the grades? What did you think got you in - did you have a lot of extra curricular stuff?
i have applied for Psychology in education and they want ABB.
i didn't do so well last year and finished with ACD. i have been offered a place if i get ABB.
as a am resitting a few exams i think (hope) i will get ABC and i hope i get a place.
considering i actually got offered a place with last years grades im hoping they liked something about me other than my grades.
Hi, I was wondering if anyone has any information about linguistics. They've offered me AAB, but there's a chance I could get ABB, what are the chances that they'd still accept me?
What's everyone else been predicted?
I'm an Electronics student so not sure if this bares any relevance to your situation. I applied with predicted grades of AAAA, got a conditional offer of AAB, screwed up Year 13 royally and was accepted with ACCC. So in my case they were rather lenient although as mentioned already it will depend on the popularity of that course at the time and how many people they are trying to squeeze in/out. For example, my firm course (Southampton) had an offer of ABB but they turned me down.
I have A* B and C at the moment, but Im re-sitting the C.
What grades did you get and did you get in?
