The deadline is the 28th of November.
I got ACDE at AS and am applying for history and film at:-
Kent (ABB)
Essex (ABB - BBB)
NTU (260)
Winchester (260 - 300)
Bath Spa (260 - 280)

Is there any point in applying for these courses as I have not been to any of these universities. My as grades that I am continuing onto A2 are
A - Photography
C - Media Studies
E - History

I have a backup course to apply for if I do not get into history and film at these universities.

Thanks

Are you being serious?!?!?!?
I'm doing an art foundation year to find out what I really want to do and then apply for a 'proper' BA in 2016. Strange question, but can you explain to me how you 'go for it?'

I didn't realise you do a art foundation course. I originally meant that if you were in AS, try and get as good as you can get. I thought you had potential based on your AS to get AAB. I felt that, if you took a year out maybe you could apply to universities that are really good? sorry i dont know much about the course and if those are good universities but i assumed that your choices were being limited.

I dont do an art foundation now xD.
I'm at A2. I'm hoping, to do an art foundation, find out what I really want to do as a degree subject and then go from there.

I don't get it, why are you applying for university now then? I don't mean to be rude, but I don't see it being likely that you'd be accepted onto a history joint honours course with an E in AS history. Don't pay for the application and just wait until after your art foundation to apply. If you're so uncertain about what you want to do and you want the art foundation year, I really don't understand why you're bothering applying now when there's a chance you might not like it.

I wanted to apply for the history joint honours just to see if I ever had a chance of being accepted by one of these universities. I have decided to solely apply for the art foundation course and then apply for a BA in 2016.

I wouldn't consider it a fair test of whether they'd accept you if you have low AS grades. If you improve for A levels then you can see whether you have a chance because it's more reasonable that they would accept you.

I have decided that is what I am going to do. I am predicted ABC for A2 which I will be fairly happy with considering I was predicted ABCD for AS.
