    I know this question has been asked constantly since the dawns of the site, but I'm applying to do Fine Art at Oxford (and the other institutions above). As UCAS make it imperative to put down every grade - and, considering the chance that my portfolio turns out really strong (been endorsed by an MBE and told I'm technically good) - can I prosper in applying to Ruskin? (My UCAS points - not that UCAS points dictate anything, either - equate to 3 A's; the grades needed for the course). If this ups the chances, I'm also doing an art foundation course. Also, I'm asking this question because of a certain teacher who has, twice, misdirected me in how I'm assessed and can get good grades (****).
    A2: A*A*C
    EPQ: D
    ABRSM grades 1-6 (practical) - additional grade 5 (theory); pass-distinction
    UAL Foundation Level 4 Diploma (currently sitting)
    City & Guilds Level 2 in 2D (distinction)(Whilst not a grade per say, I've won a design MBE competition, won a local arts centre prize and shortlisted for a university prize).Thanks!
    (Also, excuse my shorthand)

    Do you meet the entry requirements? If not but you think you may be considered because of other aspects of your application email the uni and ask. They will give you some idea.
