    It depends on the grades you get, and the subject and uni you're aiming for. You'll need to do careful research. Some unis may lower their requirements slightly with Clearing, but usually only by one grade.

    For example, this course at Derby will only accept 16 UCAS points from AS levels - so if you wanted this one, you'd need an A* in your A Level.
    This at Northumbria wants 104 UCAS points, which is BCC in 3 A Levels.
    English foundation year at MMU asks for 72 UCAS points, which would be a B at A Level and then 2 further Bs at AS.

    Thankyou so much this was really helpful! But just to be clear, if i go through clearing for a foundation degree they only look at ucas points not whether its an a or as level right?

    Hi :hello:

    Unfortunately, we don't consider UCAS points from AS Levels here at MMU, only full A-levels I'm sorry if this is disappointing to hear.

    It might be worth considering a one year Access to Higher Education Diploma to give yourself the best chance of being considered for our undergraduate courses. You may be able to apply straight to the first year of one of our courses without having to do a Foundation Year after completing your Access course, providing you meet the requirements. Details on Access courses can be found here

    Best of luck with your studies! Let us know if you have any more questions
