    Bit of a silly question, obviously I want to and am aiming to achieve my grades. However, I was just curious to how lenient hull are based on their conditions?

    I think it varies from department to department as obviously they all have different people in charge of it. However in my experience, they are really lenient (hell, I missed my offer by 2 grades and they still let me in), they also quite often offer the same course but with a foundation year to those who have missed their grades.

    BBC (with a B in either maths or physics) but I ended up with BCD as my A-levels didn't go great but they still let me in and I'm now doing better at uni than other people who got higher A-levels than me.

    Oh wow, awesome. They want BCC from me, C in both Maths and Physics. That's kind of reassuring, in case things go a bit wrong, y'know 😊

    Keep in mind that 4 years ago Hull were named "the least romantic city in the UK" so the standards back then must have been set pretty low. Now they are about to become a city of culture for 2017 and I bet that this is raising the stakes.

    it's pretty easy to get into Hull. They kind of take anyone. I didn't do A levels but a European high school degree, I got 67% and they had asked for 70%. They took me anyway.. and I heard of many cases like mine.

    Thanks for your response, are you aware of how lenient they're based on nursing courses?

    Sorry, I wouldn't be able to tell you as I studied business and didn't know anyone doing nursing :/

    They accept a lot of students via clearing, grade with C or below.

    Spoke to a tutor about this for physics yesterday, his (paraphrased) words....
    Three C's and probably ok, after that and it starts to look doubtful but they would want to have a conversation with you, and would depend on the number they have already accepted.
    As ever with physics though they look better on higher grades in maths so if you get a B in maths then you have a better chance to get in if you miss on physics

    Thanks for letting me know! Maths is actually the one I'm worried about - I'm fairly confident I can get at least a C in Physics (and Chemistry, the other a-level I did). I'll just have to wait until results day I suppose, I'm probably worrying for nothing haha 😊

    if you're doing a medical or nursing based course they are not so leniant due to outter governing bodies controling the course standards...
