    So in general I feel that I have f*** up my a levels and as a result I am only doing two now. They are relevant to what I need, and I am resitting the AS I failed so at least I will bring up my UCAS score, aswell as taking up AS Media. I want to study Film and plenty of universities have this course.. However most will ask for a minimum of 3 a levels or just show ABB BBC etc. Is there a way round this? If it makes a difference I am also doing an EPQ and a COPE course that can be equivalent to near or full marks on an AS exam. Will these help me at all? I'm looking at achieving around 420 UCAS points with most of this in mind and hoping to Achieve a B or A in English lit & lang and the same in Communication & Culture. Can anybody help me?!

    Have you tried ucas course finder? - seems to be lots of unis making points based offers for film studies.

    there is also a list of unis that definitely accept the COPE level 3 here http://www.asdan.org.uk/courses/qual...veness-level-3

    Hiya,

    You'll need to do this research yourself, I'm afraid. It's a question that universities will be asked a lot, so you're not putting yourself at a disadvantage by asking what their offers usually are (i.e. points vs grades).

    You can email the universities if you don't feel like you'd like to speak on the phone.
