This applies to Foundation years and usual university degrees.

If you don't meet your required GCSE grade or A-level grade, are you able to switch to a course with a lower required grade at the same university?

This question is for undergraduates.

Yeh but it has to be done on the day you receive your results you need to call admissions and ask, sometime there are online services to do it. But calling is better in case the course is filled

The course tutor said to email him to ask whether or not I could still do the course I applied for, in the event that I don't meet the required grade. Should I wait for his response or should I call admissions straight away after receiving my results?

No admission is the one that you really need that day, the course tutor will be only useful once admission can accept you, as they can help to forward your application to the tutor

Ah I see, thanks. Can the course tutor waver anything or is that solely down to admissions?
