Is Exeter University strict?

I'm currently doing an Access course. I've been given a conditional offer from Exeter University to study Law LLB, which was my first choice. I really want to go for it and make them my firm choice, but worried if I don't make the grades then I don't get in and also lose my offers from the other uni's I applied for (including 1 unconditional offer). Are Exeter likely to still consider you if you miss out slightly? Or are they quite strict on the requirements?

Insurance choice will probably be UWE Bristol

We don't really know because you're completing an Access course, and presumably have been given a very low offer already. They're kinda flexible with A-Levels, but that doesn't help you out.

Best bet is to get your head down and try to get the grades; no point worrying about it.

What grades do you need for each of them? What do you think you will get? Would you be happy to go to UWE?

Exeter want 21M and 12D
UWE want 15M

There's obviously quite a difference between the two, which is why I'm a bit worried about taking the gamble

But if you don't get into Exeter then you have your insurance to fall back on so what's the risk?

It's not guaranteed I'll get a space, and accommodation is usually minimal by that point.

What do you mean by "not guaranteed to get a space"? Do you mean at UWE?

You think that's bad they want 45 distinctions from me for my course.

They're often quite flexible for many courses, Law is one of their more notable ones so possibly less so than others.

If you put a university as your insurance and fail to meet the requirements of your firm, but meet the requirements of your insurance choice, they are required to take you. That's the point.

The accommodation issue can be a problem, however depending where it is it might be more or less problematic; many well established university cities have many private halls of residence in addition to the university owned ones, as well as a large private rental market for students.

You can manage 12 D or you'd struggle to get 40% on your essays at uni. It really isn't that difficult, though it might not seem like that at this point; have some confidence. As another poster mentioned, many of the middle-top unis require 45 D.
