    Hello everyone, so I'm just heading onto the final module of my HNC and on course to getting a first. But instead of carrying on to finish my HND, i want to change uni once i finish my HNC and move back to london and possibly go to a uni there. So here's my question, is there even a little possibility that a decent university in london would offer me a place?(Considering i got low grades on my A levels[C,D and Pass] and that I'm applying late). Do they take A levels into consideration aswell (As I'm guessing it'd decrease my chances of getting accepted).

    They would consider both together, you ll only know if you contact the universities and ask

    They're likely to look at both sets of qualifications together.

    As you're such an unusual case, it's going to be sensible to email admissions at each uni and
    A) state which course you're hoping to apply for
    B) state whether you're hoping to go for first or second year entry, and if second, whether or not you would consider first year entry
    C) state your subjects, grades and current institution
    D) ask if they are still accepting applications for this year for that course
    E) ask if they think that your qualifications would be considered suitable for entry to that course - they will never be able to guarantee a place, but they will be able to tell you if it's a non starter
