I've applied for IT and computing degree's at Nottingham Trent and Sheffield Hallam. I'm 21 and classed as a mature student. I have 240 UCAS points from 3 C's at A Level.

I've received 2 unconditional offers from Sheffield Hallam but was rejected from Nottingham Trent for 3 courses.

Nottingham Trents UCAS requirement was 280 so I just missed that but I was also told that I was rejected due to lack of relevant work experience but told that if the course requirements dropped to 240 then I could get onto to it. However at the moment when I spoke to them they wasn't able to change the decision.

Problem is that I really like Nottingham Trent Uni, the city and the course is much more what id like to study.

Any tips and advice would be great!

I'm afraid that NTU had three opportunities to make you an offer and a fourth when you asked them to reconsider, and they still didn't think you had what they wanted, so it's pretty much a no go. Either take SHU or take a year out, retake one of your A levels and get the work experience NTU wanted and reapply (risky.)
