    Hi do any bath students know if bath is usually quite lenient with regards to missing your offer?
    For example do you have a lot of course mates who missed by one or two grades?

    Hi, sorry that you haven't had a reply yet. I'm not a bath student but I can give you the general advice that it really depends on how others do. All unis accept more people than they can accommodate because they know some will reject them, some will insure them and others will fail to meet the requirements. So sometimes unis get the measures wrong and end up having to take on too many people or tend up taking in a lot fewer than expected.

    Anyway the point is that if everyone has an amazing year then chances are that you won't get in, but if everyone failed then you have a good shot. Also it depends on how far you missed your offer by and if the subjects were intergral to the course.

    Please also bear in mind that, in general, Bath doesn't struggle to attract well qualified candidates - for eg. It did NOT participate *at all* in UCAS Clearing for 2015/16 Entry - there's a LARGE clue...

    Good Luck.

    Thanks everyone!
    Yeah I wasn't sure if they didn't go into clearing because they pretty much accept all the people who initially applied or whether they all got the grades like you said

    I know someone who didn't get on to the Psych course because they missed the requirement by 1 point. They did IB.
