    My bottom choice university is UCLAN (University of central Lancashire)
    Requirement for the entry is - (including Maths units): Distinction Merit Merit

    I am in my 1st year, doing fine, however on my Maths unit I have failed to achieve the Merit (M2), however I have passed M1 from the assignment 1. My tutors told me that I can not get an overall grade of a Merit in the unit now and that I can only achieve a Pass from the whole Unit 4 (maths)....

    The way I understand it means - I already do not meet the criteria for the course I wanted to do in engineering ?...

    Well, if you pass the Distinction criteria and pass the pass criteria first time round. will your teachers not let you resit the merit at the end of the year?

    Hopefully they let you resit. If they don't then I wouldn't completely discard the university since there's still a possibility they might accept you. Might be worth speaking to the admission tutor for the course you want to do at university.

    If you're on your first year, then why not consider pushing the college to see if they'll let you do AS Mathematics?
