Sorry if these questions have been asked already but, basically I'm worried because I'm an AS student so wanted roughly grades ABB so I could try get up to AAB by next year (I'm ambitious but I reallly want to go to Durham University!)
1. I looked on Durham's website to find that they've upped the grade entry requirements for my BA course to AAA - so now I have little hope of getting in next year. How badly do you think Durham would look at me if I resit the year to get it up to AAA?
Would it be worth it?
2. The website only mentions that the entry requirements for 2013 have changed for the singular Anthropology courses - does this mean that if I applied to combined Anthropology and Sociology course that the grades would remain AAB?
Or would they have upped as well?
3. Durham do the same titled course (Anthropology) but as a BSc at Queens campus, where the entry grades are only ABB for next year, so this is more realistic for me. I've heard that the lecturers on Durham campus are amazing - would the lecturers be the same ones at Queens campus?
I've also heard that the area for Queens campus isn't very nice (Stockton on Tees), but I've never actually been to the Queens campus/accomodation itself - what's it like?
4. Stupid question but the entry grades at the moment are AAB... If I just missed one of the A's by a few points, would it be worth applying for the AAA course with AAB?
I know Durham is competitive and they'll have upped the grades for a reason (to get the best of the best on the course) but I just really want this!
Any help is appreciated! Thankyou in advance
