    you wont know until you try, although i would say universities like UWE, bath spa, cardiff met, coventry ETC are more likely to accept you than others. you just have to look at their entry requirement and go from there.

    Yeah, I got into Chemistry at University of Nottingham with that (although I did transfer from a different uni first). Did you have ECs?

    Definitely. There are a lot more universities these days compared to pre-1992.

    CCCU, London Met, Cardiff Met, Salford, UWS, UWE, Essex and Hertfordshire to name a few that would almost definitely accept you.

    Hi Dylan. My name is Hannah and I'm a graduate of London Metropolitan University, and I would highly recommend applying there. They taught me lots along the way, and the experience I gained was invaluable. Find out more about the course they offer here: http://www.londonmet.ac.uk/courses/

    Depends on your intended subject - and on whether or not you are prepared to actually work to improve your grades. If A levels are a struggle, Uni will that and more so.

    Not necessarily... I found A Levels difficult and got very average grades because I didn't put the effort in. I graduated last year with a first class degree. I think it's all about your attitude.
