    I currently have an offer of BBC to study Business Management and Marketing at Nottingham Trent, however I am worried that I am not going to get these grades but instead get BBD.
    Do you think they would still accept these grades?

    It's completely up to them. They may do, they may not. Your best bet is to keep working really hard and try and do the best you can. If on results day you do get BBD then call them up and ask them if they will still take you.

    Hi ethanap,

    It really depends on a number of factors. When admissions receive all the results from UCAS, they put all the people who have not received the grades for their offer into groups depending on how far they were to reaching the entry requirements (for example, 10 points, 20 points etc.)

    They then have a conversation with the subject administrators for each course, and ask them if they are willing to take people who have not reached the entry requirements and, if so, by how much?

    Some courses will be willing to take people who have not met the entry requirements, others won't. Also, if the course has asked for a specific grade (for example an A level grade at a grade B) then if you have not achieved this grade, you will most likely not be accepted to study the course at NTU.

    I hope this makes sense! Let me know if you have any more questions!

    Thanks,

    Ellen
