Where to apply with predicted grades of A*ACD? watch

    • Thread Starter


    My friend wants to study Computer Science and is predicted A*ACD (Spanish, French, maths, physics respectively). He is totally confused and doesn't know which range of universities to apply to with these grades (AAB-BBB?).

    Hoping someone can help!



    drop the physics

    to be honest with he probably needs a mix of each. There is a good chance he will get offers for AAB posts but nobody can guarantee that so having a couple of lower grades will be helpful. Most universities will accept 1 dropped grade again not guaranteed so having a uni allowing a C will also be wise. Your friend also has a problem because most an A or B in Maths so he needs to apply with ones that don't have that requirement.

    General information on subjects/grades required for entry:
    A minimum of 3 A Levels at BBB - at least 2 from science or maths subjects. A Level Maths is required. To be considered for entry into Second Year, a minimum of 3 A Levels at ABB, with AB from 2 science or maths subjects (including the subject(s) nominated for Honours - an A in the subject for Single Honours or AB in the subjects for Joint Honours).
    Also required: GCSE at C or above in English or English Language, Mathematics and in either Chemistry, or Physics or Dual Award Science.
