    how about trying for a foundation degree, or an extra foundation year to give you a grounding in whatever subject it is you want to apply for. Universities expect lower grades for this, clearing at some universities may have you especially if they are those looking based on points opposed to grades. You have more chance of getting a lower request, and foundation degrees if you're going for BA subjects rather than BSC subjects, as the latter tend to require high level A levels in specific subjects, but you can still find opportunities in those subjects. Any how, good luck with finding a place!

    Manchester can accept 2 AS Levels in place of a third A-Level, but I think you'll still need reasonably high grades.

    Yes some will accept it.
    Foundation degree was a smart idea bit the more cost efective one is to do another A level and get into a better uni.
    Take a gap year.

    Hi

    This year I applied to uni with DDU at AS level (predicted CC at A2 as u dropped the U) I got 4/5 offers for you for first year entry courses (not foundation). I had mitigating circumstances over the 2 years though but it's still accepted by a lot of unis.. don't worry you'll find somewhere.

    I would strongly counsel against equating 'can' with 'ought'.

    That's not a lot of UCAS points, so depending on your subject choice, you probably won't get into a good uni.
    You could try doing a foundation diploma, which is one year, and equivalent to 3 a-levels. Also, remember that the AS-levels you've done count as well.
    If you do fail to get anywhere, or have your mind set on a specific place, why not try looking at the Open University. That's open to everyone, regardless of peoples previous grades, and may get you on your way to somewhere you really love.

    It will depend on the course (and possibly the A-levels)

    e.g. Which Uni search for CompSci with AC at A-level

    Are you waiting for your A level results or your AS results?

    If A level do you have AS/EPQ/BTECs as well as the A levels or have you just taken 2 A levels an no other qualifications?

    If only the 2 A levels an no others - WHY did you only take 2?

    Would taking an extra year to study another A level or a BTEC be an option?

    What sort of universities are you interested in? Would you be interested in studying in Scotland where degrees take an extra year or going onto a Foundation Degree (2 year course) or HND or taking a degree with an additional foundation year?

    What subject do you want to study and which subject are your A levels in?

    Do the other A level. It would be a bad choice to insist on going to Uni based on having only 2.

    It's an old thread, but might be useful to someone. Check unistats, you can see from "entry information" what ucas tariffs the entrants actually got. A and C is 80 points, Teesside Computer Science 5% of entrants got 80-96 points. 90% actually got even less.
