    It all depends on what course, for a lot of unis. What course are you planning on applying for?

    Leeds does optionally on certain joint honours courses. For example, for English with Philosophy, you can get either AAB (inc. Gen.) or ABB without general studies.

    So, as I say, it depends on courses. (For English, less places will offer Gen. though I think Liverpool and Sheffield do.)

    You might find it easier to go for the unis that don't accept it - once you've picked up the obvious course like medicine, dentistry, etc. The safest thing is for people to check the requirements for the courses that they are interested in.

    Of those that do - for psychology anyway, which is fairly competitive - Glasgow, Glasgow Caledonian, Hull all accept it.

    leeds does for Law


    although, I guess, since it's an AAA offer and it's more an AAB/ABB type course, it all evens out...
