    Phone UMIST and speak to the admissions tutor of the relevant degree!

    Given that from 30th of September 2004 UMIST no longer exists and the fact the 2003-2004 year has finished your chances will be virtualy zero.

    As I said UMST dosn't exist anymore so you will have to go to the University of Manchester. The courses will still exisit but I would imagine some of them will slowly be merged with Manchesters courses.

    Your grades mean nothing to us as the sytems are completely different. Your English seems quite good but I'm not an admissions tutor - SPEAK TO THEM!

    let me explain my grades
    The GPA in my country is ranked from 0 to 10
    Mine is 8.5

    I guess yours is 0 to 5
    am I wrong ???

    so my grades would be equal in your system to 4.25

    am I correct about your system ? o to 5??

    No you're wrong! We don't use averages in that sense.

    We do 3 A levels (for the basis of most uni offers) and the grades (A -E and U) we achieve in those A levels dictate the courses we can do and where.

    3 A grades is the norm for entry into oxbridge, it gradually declines with the calibre of the university.

    Call manchester and they will tell you where you stand.

    Your written English seems OK, but you don't seem to understand the simple GIVE THEM A CALL!!!!
