Simpily, i had an offer for CCC for my course at psmouth uni, the couse isnt very busy either... but due to some problems i had to drop my maths A-levels(i changed college and they didnt do the same exam board for my subject)


Anyways, after getting my computing to what i think is a C, i didnt do to well in my accounting exam, i think ive prob got a D... this wasent to the fact i didnt do the work, i just kinda went blank in the exam...

what do you guys think my chances are of getting in with CD(C/AS LEVEL) instead of CCC??

TIA

If the course isn't that busy, and you are one grade under, then your chances aren't too bad, no one can say for certain. What you can do is check the course is not full on UCAS extra, talk to your personal tutor (if you have one), look at the university/depts policy regarding missed offers, and if you require confirmation contact the Undergraduate Admissions tutor for your course(remember to be polite it may come down to them deciding)

I hope you get the grades you need,
All the best

Ahh, I usually and UCAS write AS grades in lowercase, I wasn't sure what (C) meant :P sorry.

Hmm, This is really up to the university now, the fact that you don't have a full third A-level is not good, do you have any other AS, for example warwick accept (B)(B) instead of a B, if not I think its more likely that you won't be accepted on your course, sorry.

The fact its on extra is a good sign. Like I say no one can know for sure, what you could do is ring/email the admissions tutor and explain the situation to them, tell them that you believe your college can verify the situation, and ask them direct whether they will still consider you for application.

This way you will know direct from the person in charge.

I'd say very high chance of getting in with even 2-3 grade slips.

Well possibly at that uni, but in general with 2-3 slips, I'd say any top 15 uni's your offer would be completely out of the question. I'd be interested as to whether your applying 2-3 generally or just for mwalshe89's uni?

Yep, thats what I've done for the tutor for my course, as I feel I may miss the offer, but its at a Top 5 Uni, so its likely to be alot more strict.

Like I said before, make sure its polite, to the point, and fully spell checked etc. The admissions tutor will most likely decide your situation on results day. You want to come across well before then.

Best o'luck

im in the same position
I need CCC
but i had to drop history in march so i have AS and points from jan A2 exam.. but didnt do very well to be honest.
and with the other 2 subjects im sitting.. maths and human biology im probably gonna come out with 2 D's ! But when i went on the open day the course leader said to me that if i didnt get the grade they would look more at the maths and human bio anyway because its a sciency type course. So do you think i have a chance of getting in??

Hey there,

I psychology at portsmouth requires BBB. Yet i know people who have had uncondtional offers of BCD and BCC. Its a popular course.

So bascially, there is hope for you :-) as it seems portsmouth take quite a few people lower.
Also, my friends friend who goes to portsmouth said portsmouth take people in more or less if you get the grades or not.

You could ask 'Drongo' he did a thread on here called 'clearing 2007' and ask if its still in clearing.

Hope that helps
