    If the entry requirements are AAB (with the minimum of BBB) and if you get ABC, would they still consider you? Thanks

    Just go on the UCAS website, search the course you want to do, and then it will show you the required UCAS points to do that course at the university.

    If this is for Clearing entry, it probably depends on what the C is in and whether they think its a critical subject. Having an A grade does not in itself bump up the C grade.
    Phone them - you've got nothing to loose.

    For standard applications in the main cycle, just be aware that a grade range like this usually means that the lower grade range (BBB) is ONLY for those eligible for Contextual Offers (low performing school, or personal circumstances etc), with the higher set (AAB) as the standard offer. If you are asking about this for 2015 entry, do NOT phone or email any Uni to check right now - wait a few weeks until the Clearing rush has finished.

    I want to have a degree in French and Chinese and so far I have an A in French, a B in History and a C in English...so I'm not sure what to say because I also have to apply in October and I gotta go to the open days as well.

    Why do you have to apply in October? Unless this is a course at either Oxford or Cambridge, the closing date for applications is in January 2015.

    Hm...it might be, but someone told me that it's around October/November

    I think you need to research how to apply for a University place in the UK a great deal more thoroughly than you have!
    I suggest you stop relying on 'someone told me'. Applications open in October - and close in January.
