    Yep.
    If you're one grade off I think universities still tend to take people. What they usually do is put their entry requirements up high to make themselves look better so they get more points and end up higher on the league tables. It also means that people end up firming the ones with higher entry requirements, a professor from Nottingham talks a little about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvvF7-5SIJ8

    It'll probably work out but if it doesnt you don't need to worry if you don't get a place there because lots of other good universities would be willing to take you - you just need to contact them quickly and get in

    Im wanting to apply for 2017 but I'm not sure nw
    It's worth applying still, you get up to 5 choices for your UCAS anyway so go for it
    Universities will drop their grade requirements during clearing too, so next year you could have a place there.

    Like I said though, there's plenty of other good universities out there though so don't have your heart set on just one

    Just because it says so on the website doesnt mean it's set in stone, CALL THEM! you have nothing to lose and if they say no, resit, there is more than one way to get somewhere as my mum says.there is no harm in calling them, so listen to the ppl above and TRY IT!

    I don't think they will because I dint get 2A3Bs
    Why havent you contacted them?
    If you wont consider elsewhere and they wont accpet you on those grades, then check whether they do a course with a foundation year or you will have to rethink.
    That means retaking or choosing somewhere else.

    Until you ask, then you wont know for sure.

    I see you posted new info. You fall below the min- so just ring them up and see what they have to say. You seem reluctant to do so. They cna give you the guidance on what they expect and if your grades are insufficient, plus there is no leeway, then you will have to resit or do something else. Bothing is going to change that. They have the power to make the decision, so its they who you need to speak to.

    I'm applying for 2017 that's why I haven't called
    They are your S6 results?
    Based on the info you posted they are insufficient. You should still ring and check. If you dont ask you wont get.

    The same advice again. If they say no= resit or find somewhere else.

    Sorry , I'm just really bugged out since I can't go Glasgow
    Talk to them to understand what your options are. You seem really reluctatnt o do this, but its in your interests to do so.

    If you are that annoyed, then resit your exams, get the grades, take a gap year, earn money and go the following year. Simple as that.
