    Hi I'm currently predicted ACE at a Levels for Graphics, physics and maths. However i would like to apply to Dundee university for Architecture. But they require BCC minimum or BBB typical and they also consider an EPQ which I am also taking alongside A levels.

    So I was wondering if anyone knows if I would be considered for a place at their uni ? Or will my application be brushed off as I don't have the entry requirements. bare in mind these are predicted and can change after my real exams😭

    Anyone who makes a serious application will be considered. Based on those grades I wouldn't be surprised if you did not receive an offer. If you have genuine reasons for some of your lower grades then maybe make sure that your referee includes them in your UCAS application reference.

    Are you Scottish? - this stuff matters for grade offers as Home-RUK students are not as limited as Home-Scotland students.

    You could apply for foundation year, or if you get no offers just go through clearing when you have your results.

    yeah I've chosen 4 unis so far and one of them has a foundation year integrated. And the other unis I have the correct entry requirements. So I'm just looking into my last choice now

    I know Portsmouth are known for letting people do physics with a d in physics, even though it doesn’t say thta on their website. I would have a look there.
