Changing Universities in first year from the University of Newcastle to something like the University of Nottingham? Do they still take a look at your A-Levels or is the focus entirely on your first year's academic performance?

I think they look at both. At least when I tried to transfer in first year for second year somewhere else they did. I didn’t end up doing it because the places that gave me offers wanted me to start from first year. Still my A Levels were a lot lower than their requirements, so maybe that’s an option if you don’t mind an extra year of uni?

I was trying to transfer from Essex to elsewhere. Applied to Leicester, Nottingham, Birmingham, Glasgow, and Manchester (this one was for a wildly different course). Leicester said yes, didn’t fancy Glasgow so ended up staying. Economics and Politics was my course, tried back in 2012

Oh really, even if I apply to the same course? I always assumed they wouldn't let students transfer if the students want to change courses as well as Universities or if the course syllabus is too dissimilar from the first year course syllabus at Nottingham.

I would email student services and ask but i doubt it, we do a different modular structure then most unis...

6 modules a semester generally and 5 exams every semester! Thats not something you want to get used to in 2nd year, coming from a different university.
