    I have a question regarding entry requirements in to different universities. I want to study politics and international relations, with my AS grades being average at BBD.

    Politics - B
    Film - B
    Sociology - D (Got an A in unit 1 E in unit 2, retaking unit 2)

    Ultimately, I'm worried whether i'll get into universities for example the university of westminster is offering BBC for this course if I was to get BBD or BCD will they still accept me?

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

    I'm going to quote in Tank Girl now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

    Hey

    Sorry that no one else seems to have replied. I'm at Westminster (1st Year) and I have a few friends who were in your position when they applied.

    Their grades are a guideline not law. So if you get BBD (or BCD) when their grades are BBC you are still able to get in! A friend of mine got CCE for a BBC course, so there's living proof that you can still get in without meeting the guidelines

    Just make sure your Personal Statement shows you off as it a major decider into whether they will take you on if you have grades lower than the guideline.

    Hope this helps!
