    I have just started sixth form, but already looking towards my future. I am pretty set on a certain course and Uni. The requirement grades are A*AA in the subjects I have chose, what happens if I dont manage to get those grades. Will they offer me a lower course or will I have to retake my a-levels??

    Did you apply for a integrated masters course with those requirement grades?

    So if they have a BSc equivalent with lower grades i.e. AAA, and you get those grades instead of A*AA then you'll still be accepted just 'downgraded' onto the BSc course instead of the MEng (Once you're at uni and attaining a 2:1 they should let you onto the MEng)


    I've actually just looked, and they don't do a BSc/BEng on it's own, so unless you get A*AA in your A levels then you probably won't get onto the course

    So what will happen then? Will I have to re-sit my alevels if I want to get on that course. Will it be the whole second year I will have to retake

    Yeah if you want Leeds then you'll have to resit, you're school may not let you resit if you get decent grades though anything above BBB etc. so you may have to be a private candidate.
    I assume you'd just resist year 13 as that's when exams are taken
    There is the option to go through Clearing though to find a course at another uni that you do have the grades for
