    Hi Sophie876,

    Applications can take up to 4-6 weeks to be processed. The first place that will be updated will be your UCAS Track so you will need to keep an eye on there for any updates.

    I hope this helps. If you have any more questions please do not hesitate to ask.

    Good luck with your application!

    Best wishes,

    Hi,

    All applications are assessed on an individual basis and unconditional offers depend on the applicants overall profile and vary from course to course.

    Satisfying the typical entry requirements for a course is not a guarantee of an offer of a place. Many courses are oversubscribed and applications are viewed holistically, taking into account your grades, grade predictions, reference and personal statement, including any relevant experience you may have.

    I hope this helps

    Hi,

    How much do you take AS Levels into account for Law? Because I have fairly decent GCSEs (10 Bs, 1 A and an A*) but my AS Levels of ADDE aren't the best. My predicted grades are above the entry requirements, but I wondered if my AS levels would reflect badly upon me?

    In addition, is there any set criteria for unconditional offers, especially in Law?Many thanks

    Hi,

    Offers are made based on predicted A2 grades, rather than AS Levels. Therefore if your predicted grades are above the entry requirements then you would be eligible to apply.

    We do not have a set criteria for unconditional offers. All applications are assessed on an individual basis and unconditional offers depend on the applicants overall profile and can vary.

    I hope this helps! If you have any more questions please get in touch.

    Best wishes

    Roughly many people do you offer places to that are studying on an access course? Currently 19 and doing an access course in Humanities and applying for Philosophy, with this in mind, and the fact that it's only a year so no predicted grades, do you tend to overlook people doing my course a bit or are we all treated equally? Worrying about this so so much because MMU is 100% going to be my first choice but I'm just worried that I'm not going to be able to get the grades that you ask for.

    Hi,

    Unfortunately we do not keep records of courses that entered into clearing each year as it changes from year to year.

    When clearing opens the courses that are still available are listed on our website at http://www2.mmu.ac.uk/clearing/.

    I hope this helps.

    Best wishes

    Hi Katienurd,

    We treat applicants with Access to Higher Education Diplomas the same as if they were to have A Levels or BTEC's, so applying with an Access course doesn't put you at a disadvantage at all.

    For our BA (Hons) Philosophy we look for 106-112 UCAS points from an Access Diploma and GCSE at Grade C or Grade 4 in English Language.

    I hope this helps. Good luck with your application!

    Best wishes,
