    Yes, assuming all other things being ok. But you are significantly exceeding the typical A-level requirements for all 3 unis. e.g. MMU is BBC. Why not apply to more "demanding" universities?

    As I said, I am an international student :indiff: which means that I need to pay 20K each year in universities such as UoM which is expensive for me ! But universities such as Bolton,MMU or Salford are cheaper (12K to 13K) !
    of course I would prefer UoM but I cant pay the fees

    Sorry for calling you a troll. You would be doing yourself a great disservice going to either of these universities it would be a waste of money - but more importantly- a waste of 3 years. I suggest finding alternative methods of funding or looking for places closer to home MMU and Bolton are generally where our less academic teens go.

    No I would not, your potential would be wasted there. I would suggest perhaps working for a year to make the money so that you can go to institutions such as Manchester, UCL and Bath or maybe even Imperial College London and Cambridge. These are the institutions we are famous for.

    So i'd apply to these places now. Request deferred entry for a year, make money in that year and then attend next year. You will be starting university a year late but trust me MMU, Bolton and Salford would be a waste of 3 years.
