I'm in the same situation. I'm doing my extended diploma and my predicted grades are at a PPP and I think i'll just manage to scrape it and i'm scared because I don't know if i'll get accepted into uni plus I'm meant to be doing a health course and they're all hard to get into. I've applied for a foundation degree but even those ask for MMM or MMP. I'm thinking to apply through clearing but I'm not guaranteed a place.

If I have to be 100% honest with you, it's not great. Remember university is a lot harder and requires a lot more work, perhaps look at apprenticeships?

For an extended diploma then its equivalent to something like DEE at A level. It is the lowest pass mark you can get.

Its worth 48 points and most of the poor unis require at least 80, 96, 104, 112 points.
It puts you in a very difficult situation and am not sure I would proceed to university, but would reappraise my academic capabilities. It might be better to do something like an access course rather than using limited HE funding at any uni that might take you.
