    Hi!
    (I'm kinda new to TSR so sorry if I've done anything wrong haha)

    I'm just wondering, when universities come to decide if they're accepting you (once you've done your exams and you've got your grades) do they simply look at the 3 (or more or less) grades you got eg ABB
    Or do they look at the individual exam grades you got. Because, say someone got A's in 2 of their modules, but then got a D for another, their overall grade will not be an accurate representation of their achievements in each module?
    I'm saying this because I got an A and a B in my english lit coursework, and feel reasonably confident about one of my exams.... but the last exam went awfully I don't want to get a C or a D overall and the grades for my coursework and other exam grades be overlooked?
    Thankyou to anyone who can help me out, it would be really helpful!!!!

    They can see the overall grades and they can see the module grades if they choose to look, but they are not going to waste their time doing this if you have met the grade.

    They are going to look at your overall score - if you have met the offer, the module grades are irrelevant.

    The only time when they might consider your module grades is if you narrowly miss the offer (say, instead of ABB getting ABC), in which case they will try to ascertain how close to the offer you were and may choose to accept you nevertheless.

    The above is for meeting an offer grade. When you're applying first time to UCAS, they can see all your module scores (albeit not your UMS unless they ask for it), and they can take them into account in whichever way they like.
