    I'd be inclined to take the foundation year. The course will fill in any gaps in your biology knowledge which could account for the C, and put you in a better position to do well in the full degree.

    You can always contact universities and ask them to extend the deadline on your clearing offers (if you explain that you want to be sure you're making the right decision then they'll only refuse if they're ********s - and you wouldn't want to study with a university who place their own convenience above your welfare)

    Is there any chance you'd look beyond london? That would give you a lot more options

    Have QMUL said that you'd be doing a foundation year for biomed?
    http://www.sefp.qmul.ac.uk/home/progression/index.html "It is not normally possible to change to another subject area (or School) once you have started on the Foundation Programme."

    Don't accept the foundation hoping to swap if they haven't given you assurance that you'll get onto the degree you want if you pass.

    QMUL's foundation years are better than most but they're not a free pass onto any subject

    I know they're very good for animation and art based courses. I'm afraid I don't know anything about their science courses.

    I did but they said I have to get certain percentages and do really well...but i dont get how well..and also there is a risk of not actually doing well and going back to square one...do you know if after the foundation course I have to reapply for a biomeds course through ucas or how it works?
    Thanks

    Congratulations on receiving an offer for the University if Hertfordshire!

    The best way to make up your mind would be to visit the University to see where you will be studying and see the campus, services and facilities on offer.

    We will be running events tomorrow (Saturday 20 August) and all week next week so that can come the University and look around both campuses and have a look around. To see more information please look on our website: http://www.herts.ac.uk/clearing/clea...d-campus-tours

    You will also get the opportunity to see the accommodation that we have on offer, as all first year students are guaranteed accommodation if they want it.
