So I’ve just finished my A levels in biology, maths and further maths but I haven’t applied to university because I was never sure what course I wanted to do. Over the past couple months I’ve started to wish I had applied for this year as I’ve realised that I’d be interested in doing a neuroscience course at Exeter uni. The only problem is that I’d need AAB-ABB and I don’t think I’ve got anywhere near this in my exams but I guess I won’t know until results day. Is it worth applying through clearing because I do really want to go to uni this year or should I not bother?

Just checked, it is. I would call them, their email response is atrocious.

Thank you, it’s on there! I’m assuming universities like to fill their courses because of making money but if my grades are too far off the entry requirements would they not consider me at all? I don’t want to have false hope and apply but then again it could be worth trying? x

If the requirements are ABB and you get BBB I really think they'd consider you tbh, especially if you get Bs in science subjects. No matter what you get you should try and don't definitely look at other unis that might have lower requirements. You never know where you'll end up tbh and it could suit you in the end x

I just looked on this website https://vacancies.exeter.ac.uk/clearing/exeter-home/ and when I click on neuroscience it says the entry requirements are BCC even though the original requirements are AAB-ABB, is there a reason for this or am I looking at the wrong thing? x

A lot of universities will bring down the requirements in clearing, so it's great if they have

Hi daisyashford. Great that you are interested in studying Neuroscience at Exeter and you are right, it is in currently in clearing. You have found the right information on our Clearing pages, but, as you are awaiting your results, please make sure that you pre-register with us (www.exeter.ac.uk/clearing/pre-register/) and we will keep you updated with all the information that you need right up to results day. Good luck!

Hi, although I’m awaiting my results am I still able to contact Exeter now in hope to get an informal offer or do I have to wait until results day?

Hi. Clearing is currently only open for students who already have their results. The best thing to do is pre-register (link in my initial post) with us and you will be the first to get notification of courses in Clearing, advice about calling us on results day, information about accommodation and details about how to visit us, including Clearing visit days. As you will be on our radar and have all the information how to make your application once you know your grades.

Thank you, I’ve pre-registered through the link you gave me. Is it correct that the entry requirements for neuroscience through clearing are now BCC?

Hi - I contacted Admissions to get an update for you about the position for Neuroscience. This is their reply:

"The grades shown on our Undergraduate webpages are our Typical offers, eg for Neuroscience our typical offer for 2019 entry has been AAB-ABB. This does not mean that anyone with predicted grades outside of this range would not have received an offer.

The grades we are looking for in Clearing are sometimes lower for some programmes as this will depend on how a cohort has performed (how many have met the offer they have been given) against the number of spaces we have left on a particular programme and the lowest offers we have been able to make throughout the year. We are sometimes able to be more flexible with our offers in Clearing as someone applying through Clearing will have achieved their grades, removing the uncertainty of whether someone will meet their offer or not."

Please be assured that you have done the right thing by pre-registering and that you have put yourself in the best position that you can prior to receiving your results.
Karen
