    I can't see many people applying to do a foundation course unless they really messed up their AS grades. I may be totally wrong... but i'd like to think most who go on them are those who were given it as an option after finding out from their chosen unis that their grades wasn't enough for the course (thus offering foundation)... which brings me to the assumption that potentially if you do apply for foundation courses and your UCAS is enough (normally 65-80 points)... you should be quite likely to get in?

    I'm applying to do a game art foundation degree at low ranked universities... I just really want to get in... i have the right amount of UCAS.

    I don't really know, but I can imagine that a lot of mature students who didn't do A levels or didn't do very well at them for whatever reason but are now re-thinking their careers, apply directly to do foundation degrees.

    You literally just described my situation . I was doing business studies and realized how boring it was. Now I'm applying to do game art without a art/design related A level. I'm 20... not sure if that counts as mature.
