    I'm worried I won't get AAA-AAB for bachelors in any engineering course at Nottingham university (My aspirational univeristy). So I have decided to go for the Foundation course to enter the bachelors degree. My question is, say I get ABBBB or BBBBB in order of Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Maths and Spanish, for my A levels, or Even BBCCB, for a course that requires atleast 3 Bs in any subject, will I get in even if it also requires me to have a B in maths for GCSE, where I got a C in IGCSE maths but for English and Bio I got A* and B for Chemistry and Physics?
    This is the course:

    I wouldn't recommend doing a foundation course because student finance for 1 year will be used up.

    First complete your a levels and see what you get, you can always go for foundation course through clearing if that's what you want to do.

    Why are you doing five subjects? Maybe if you drop biology and spanish you'll get AAA or better.

    Really? I mean I am willing to spend my savings for that one particular year, the rest being student loans of course.

    But I didn't know I could go for clearing in foundation. Maybe I'll actually try to apply for the normal course then, thank you for your help.

    I get that alot hahaha, but I simply enjoy them all, and I'de feel like I'm running away from them, I'm not a clever person, but still doesn't mean I can't enjoy the sciences right? plus bio and spanish are my strongest subjects so hewl naw.

    Well good luck to you, I certainly couldn't get good grades in 5 A-levels.

    A Foundation Year leading to a degree doesn't use up your funding.

    Quality not quantity. Honestly. AAA is *much* better than BBBBB

    For Engineering you need Maths, and usually Physics. Drop Chem and Spanish and get that BBBBB up to AAA.

    You can always develop your Spanish at your university language centre.

    And your A-level in Maths *might* override your GCSE. Check direct with the university.

    The thing is, I'm a very dumb student, so if I put all my efforts in, I'de probably still get a B even if I did 3 subjects. Plus spanish is easy since I am a fluent speaker
