    Hi i am hoping to transfer to lancaster from uclan university. i have completed my second year and got a 2:1 and also 2:1 in my first year. I am aware that if i do transfer i would have to do second year again which am cool with but i just have a couple of questions.

    i rang the admissions team today at lancaster and they said to email them with my gcse a levels and current uni grades. i got 2 b and 1 c for a levels and i have 11 gcse.

    first is could they reject me based on my a levels since originally i was supposed to go to lancaster however i became extremely lazy in A2 and didnt try very hard. and in order to get in to lancaster i needed 2A and 1 B.

    Secondly is it worth it? since i have already completed 2 years at uclan?

    thirdly if they ask me to apply through ucas and i get rejected would my current position at uclan be taken away as well meaning will i not be able to go to uclan either to complete my 3rd year?

    thank you

    You could always do Masters there instead.

    Have they said they will consider you specifically at Lancaster or just given general advice about how to apply? They can reject you on whatever basis they want to. However, they can't take away your place at UCLAN. As to whether it's worth it, you don't give your reasons for wanting to transfer so I couldn't say, but my instinct is that it's not worth it at this stage. Your mileage obviously varies.

    i was told to email the admissions offfice with all my previous qualifications .
    would i not have to withdraw from uclan in ordee to apply through ucas?
    there are many reasosns for why i want to transfer but the one is that i always wanted to go there but became extremely lazy at A2 and didnt try and i still feel really guilty about it so i figured i would give it a chance now also its a much better university.

    I'm not sure at what point you have to withdraw from your current place, but the answer will be in the transfer sticky at the top of the page. Simply making a Ucas account won't trigger a loss of place. It is very, very late in the day for this, so you will have to discuss this directly with the universities concerned. I personally don't think it's worth it, but you clearly do, so you need to get on very quickly with sending them the information they have asked for. If they won't let you transfer into the second year, it's going to cost you a lot of money and straight away, as you will have to fund a new first year yourself before student finance steps back in with your remaining two years' worth.
