    If somebody gets only bcc at a levels when they were meant to get higher can they then apply for a foundation year? or is a foundation year for those who have taken Btecs or other awards??

    Well, their website says they welcome applications from:

    • Mature learners (over 21) with no formal qualifications*
    • Mature learners (over 21) with A-Levels (or equivalents) which were obtained over three years ago
    • Young learners (under 21) with adverse circumstances which could not be mitigated by their academic provider (evidence will be required)
    • Young learners (18 to 21) who have not engaged in post 16 education
    • Learners with strong A-Level (or equivalent) results in subjects that are not suitable for their chosen degree subject (Conversion students)
    So yes they do accept people with low A level grades, but the reasons why you did badly are a factor. If you just didn't work hard enough then you're unlikely to be given a place. I suggest you make use of their online enquiry form to get a more detailed answer. https://www.dur.ac.uk/foundation.centre/enquiryform/
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
