    Because of my low a level results (which I am going to resit, but not hoping for more than B's) I've been looking at universities with quite low requirements, below BBB to CCC. Obviously the courses are lower quality than Uni's with much higher requirements. But what I'm wondering about is some Uni's which require extremely low grades, like DDD or CC. Are they legit Universities? Are the qualifications even worth something from a Uni like that?

    De Montfort is quite a good university (TEF gold) with lower entry requirements. It all depends on what course?

    It depends on the subject you want to do. However I think it's best to just focus on re-taking and achieving the best possible grades x

    I'm not planning on applying to these universities, I am aware that it would be best to just retake my exams.
    I was just curious as to the quality of these courses, because it doesn't seem to me like they are worth doing in the first place.

    Heriot-Watt in Scotland has a high graduate employability rate and is also quite good for various social sciences, such as Economics, where they're ranked 3rd on the Guardian 2018 league table. Entry requirements are BBB.
