Hi! I'm an Italian applicant and we do not have predicted grades. It really depends on how you do on your Esame di Stato. So you could get an 80% as well as a 70%. I was wondering, if I get an offer, but I miss the grade of the conditional offer by 2 to 5%, do I still have a chance at being admitted, or not?
thank you,
Isabel

UEA generally tend to be lenient where they can be, but a lot depends on how many people meet their offers versus how many people they can take on the course.

hi,
why does Economics with a placement year have different requirements than doing normal Economics.
I only ask this because some universities like Loughborough offer the same thing but the grade requirements are the same for the courses.
