    Even if they don't say bbd, it's always worth calling them on the day, because you never know for sure any particular reason why you're set on London? I mean, there are loads of great places that may be more flexible

    Neuroscience
    Middlesex asks for 280 UCAS points (BBD is 260) but as it's through clearing it is always worth calling them up and asking. http://search.ucas.com/course/entryr...rsedetailsmenu

    Have you got your results yet? Do you definitely know your results?

    My advice is have a really detailed look through UCAS clearing places, look at different courses and unis and note down all the ones that appeal to you, and the uni admissions number. Then on results day call up and wrangle a place

    Why insure a course that has the same requirements as your firm? Especially if you are retaking a year...

    Anyway, as Fox Corner says you won't really know your results until Results Day, and there will almost definitely be options in Clearing if necessary.

    Is the Clearing list going to change? Are more universities are going to put themselves on the list approaching Results Day?

    For the record, I'm pretty sure you can retake. You just can't study at whatever school you're at. That being said, some schools let you retake past 19 anyway (mine does).

    You can just get a job, revise as your own then pay to enter yourself into an exam

    Why are you only looking at London? There's the rest of the country to look at unis that may be a lot more flexible

    I'm not sure about neuro pathways, but I'm absolutely certain that QMUL does Foundation year entry. If your heart is set, it's worth phoning them to ask about that as a potential route.

    Do you mind me asking why it took 3 years? Did you fail the same subjects once before? Or did you change subjects after the 1st AS year?
