    I applied to five universities, with entry requirements ranging from a 280 to a 320 on UCAS. I'm predicted a BBC, but I think that a BBC is the highest I can get. I think I'll be able to get somewhere between a CCC to a ABD, or like somewhere in between a 240 and a 300.

    2 of the universities have given me an impossible offer: ABB
    2 have given me reasonable ones: 280
    I'm awaiting one from which I expect to receive a BBC decision.

    I'm thinking of applying to Nottingham Trent now. Can that be done through clearing? What are the chances. Also, I applied to Brighton, which gave me a 280 conditional offer, but I think there was a course with a 260 requirement on the website. Can I apply to that through clearing? And can I do the same with the other uni's.

    You can certainly apply to Nottingham Trent through clearing, provided they still have spaces in their course and have dealt with their firms/insurance applicants. Also, I've heard that Nottingham Trent are pretty lenient with their grade requirements but don't take my word on it!

    How flexible a uni is is entirely dependent on the outcome of results day.

    If you are unhappy with all of your offers you could decline them all and apply to Nottingham Trent through UCAS Extra should the course you like be available. Read up on whether or not you think this might be a good option for you

    Hi ZHguy,

    I'm glad you are thinking about studying at Nottingham Trent! If you have any questions about the uni life at NTU, or the course you are thinking of studying, please let me know and I will try my hardest to answer them!

    Like Changing Skies said above, you could apply via UCAS extra (if the course you would like to study is available). I'll link you to more info on UCAS extra below so you can see whether it is something you would like to do:

    UCAS Extra

    However, if you do want more information on UCAS Extra, or the other options available to you, I'd advice you to contact our admissions team at:

    +44 (0) 115 848 4200

    They will be able to advise you on your options and give you some advice on your next steps.

    I hope this helps and let me know if you have any more questions!

    Thanks,

    Ellen
