I'm hoping to study Marketing at Lancaster University this September but I'm worried I won't meet the requirement grades (ABB - reduced from AAB as I made it my firm choice).
I'm worried about the second B as I really struggled in gaining high marks in Geography A-level.
Would Lancaster accept me if I got AAC? or ABC?
Also does anyone know if Marketing is oversubscribed at Lancaster?

i am a student at lancaster uni, if you do miss by one grade you will still very very likely get in. Some of my friends were in the same situation and still got in. I would be very very suprised if you didnt get accepted.

It will all depend what the other applicants get and how many there were this year, one grade drop isn't unheard of but as they already reduced it i wouldn't expect them to drop it much if at all.

Unis often misrepresent the grades they actually require.

By way of example, Lancaster requires AAB for law. But I submitted an FOI request and discovered for 2017, 31% of their intake had ABB and another 31% had BBB.

I think it is more more than possible that they would accept students 2-3 grades below the stated offer, especially for a less competitive course.

Hi ilycreer,
I can't give a definite answer and you'll only know for sure on results day but there are currently clearing places for marketing. This means there's still spaces and means its more likely you'll be accepted on slightly lower grades. If you go onto track on results day and find you have been rejected, definitely call up as there are definitely still places!
Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions,
