So I’m currently on a gap year doing work and saving money for uni. But due to personal reasons, I missed my first UCAS deadline of 15 January. Now tbh I reallllly want to go to Liverpool university OR Nottingham for BSc/BA Accounting and Finance.

(For everyone’s info I got A* B B in accounting, maths and economics and grade A* in Maths GCSE and same in english and the rest of them were B and above)

Sooo I called up Nottingham (they need AAB for the course) and they said they are still open for applications but do not consider grade equivalents like A* BB.

When I called up Liverpool (AAB), they said it is lower than their requirement because they don’t do grade equivalents butttttt my application will be considered if my personal statement and reference is good.

What do you guys think are my chances of getting an offer from Liverpool? Or if I don’t get it do you guys think I’d be able to get it in clearing?

I really liked Birmingham (AAB) as well but when I emailed them, they said they are now closed. The first time I called them they said they are ready to consider people with grades as low as BBB which seemed great for me! But the next time I called they strictly said my application wouldn’t be considered.

Ngl I was kinda like wtf bro 😂

But yes sorry for the rant and any help would be appreciated please!!! If anyone currently going Liverpool could give me advice or anything that would be really helpful. I’m currenlty working on a super glamourous personal statement...adding my work experience and all that.

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.
