    Thank you all for your help!

    Unfortunately, Roehampton have told me that they are full and are not accepting anymore students. But I do have one other issue. I was told by Portsmouth Uni (one of my choices that rejected me) that AAT Level 3 was acceptable alone, for entry onto year one of any Accounting related degree. However, a few weeks after submitting my application, they emailed me saying that they would not accept me as they do not accept AAT Level 3 alone!

    Is there any action I can possibly take. By action I do not mean suing them for all the got lol, but (as far fetched as it sounds), an extra UCAS choice perhaps? Lol, I know how I sound, but its worth asking!
    Hellow...i was planning to use Extra for Roehampton..but did they say that ur course is full or all the courses? I want to study bioscience

    Sorry this is off topic..but pls help!

    Get back to them and point this out to them. Say that you were encouraged to apply and then rejected on false grounds - false because they had said your qualifications were acceptable. Show the evidence and demand to be reconsidered.

    Alternatively try to get an alternative choice via Ucas, but it's not their fault so that might be difficult.
    You could try calling ucas, but they could have been clever with their wording and said that competition was fierce and you didn't make the cut .. Just because you have the stated grades/ qualifications doesn't mean they're obliged to accept you.

    No but they shouldn't be encouraging applicants to apply with qualifications that aren't suitable.

    If OP has it in writing that they said they would accept their qualifications before applying and then rejected because they wouldn't accept that qualification then there's a case for Portsmouth to at least work with UCAS to allow a substitute choice.
