Hi,

Sociology and Social policy is taking students at BCC, so you should be eligible for a place. Please keep trying, our clearing hotline processes over 9000 calls on this day with each person taking around 80 calls. I understand it can be frustrating, but it will be worth the wait.

If you have any questions about Aston in the mean time, feel free to give me a shout.

Hi,

Our Neuroscience course is clearing at BBB, if you have the appropriate grades please keep trying to get through on 0121 204 4444, i know demand is quite high right now, but we are trying our very best to answer each and every call.

If you have any questions about Aston whilst you wait just give me a shout.

Good luck

I would look at your tariff points if that's the case, if you're within a 20 point range it may still be worth calling up.Alternatively if your grades are much lower, you might want to do a foundation year in science which will allow you entry onto Neuroscience.

I've yet to receive my grades but I missed my offer for Biological Sciences, I know at worst I have CDD (I know it's stupid to ask without my actual grades) but if I have those grades is there much point applying for the foundation year science?

I should hopefully be phoning up with results in about an hour.

Hi,

Sorry to hear that,

Our foundation programme is clearing at CCC, i would check your grades first, odds are you may be made a cascade offer already if you are suitable for a foundation programme.

Good luck!

Okay I'll give it a go then although everything I dial the number I get "line busy" and then the call hangs up. Is this true for everyone or is there a calling waiting service?

If I haven't already does it mean I've not got it?

Hi,

Unfortunately i can't speculate on offers on TSR. Best course of action is to call up and inquire into the foundation year. I know it can be frustrating, but try your best.

Hi,

Keep trying, you should be entering a hold queue, alternatively, try using a different phone to call in from.

What course are you interested in?
