    Hi there

    You have 180 UCAS points so you would meet the entry requirements for our 3 year degree programme in Accounting and Finance - currently we are asking for 120 UCAS points in addition to GCSE Maths at grade C or above.

    If you would like to chat to a member of my team to discuss your options you can call us on 0207 403 8080 or email [email protected] c.uk

    Good luck!

    Hey rcdasilva!
    It's so great that you have been thinking about applying for your accounting degree at BPP University It's important to know that, even if you think you might not have met the entry requirements for the degree, BPP University considers all applications on merit- you might have other things to offer which could help your application (e.g. work experience, AS level etc.)

    Our clearing lines are still open today and someone from our admissions team would be happy to speak to you about your application. If you want to do this, call 03333 318 476.

    Alternatively, I can arrange for you to come in and speak to someone in person, if you wish.

    If you have any questions please don't hesitate to post and I will reply ASAP!
    Thanks,
    Emily

    In your shoes I'd think very carefully about whether its worth spending all that money to get a degree which probably has very limited value. That is, if your A Level grades are a fair reflection of your perforamnce.

    In my view you'd do much better to retake and improve your grades or try and get a job with some training. Apologies for the blunt message.

    Right I've had a lot of thinking to do, and sorry if I wasn't clear enough - these were my AS results. So i was thinking more if I carry on would I be able to do a good course at Uni, or is it better to start looking at apprenticeships and courses. If I'm honest I should have achieved Bs I was predicted but I truly didn't work hard enough.

    Another option I have is to restart doing Biology, Maths and Chemistry - this would lead me to Biomedical science at Uni then Medicine or Dentistry after. Ive heard teachers say its achievable but some say Unis look if i passed first time or not, so if I restart I'd be rejected anyway

    Right now I did Business, Chemistry and Maths (and physics which I FAILED) if i drop physics I will aim for Bs and maybe do chemistry at UNI

    If you have any advice please reply it would be very much appreciated
