    thank you! yeah, it's a bit strange the way they do things, especially as not all the nov/dec interviewees hear in jan - some have to wait until march - and birmingham are interviewing next week still!

    If you look here: http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/undergra...ryRequirements the threshold for contextual isn't that low - <80% 5A*-C inc English and Maths for GCSEs and a mid-C average at A-Level, so a lot of "good" comprehensive schools will still fall into that.

    You have to meet both the A-Level school and GCSE school requirements though - is your A-Level school badly performing too?

    No I haven't got a reply yet, might be better to ring and ask instead since that'd be faster.
