It really depends what you want to do. Have you checked Clearing vacancies to see if there is anywhere you could access directly? Foundation years are an extra year of study and are not always totally necessary. They also don't guarantee you a place on the full degree.

Do you reckon its worth me phoning aston back and asking if they could place me on another Business course. I got CDD with 1 mark off a C in economics but they want CCC to clear

All you'd have to do is go through student finance and update your course duration details. gov.uk has a good rundown of information on student finance, including foundation years. https://www.gov.uk/student-finance/who-qualifies

hope this helps!

There's certainly no harm in asking.

You just need to clearly explain your situation and suggest the course(s) you would like to be considered for. I'd advise doing this as soon as you can as vacancies will change as the morning progresses.

That's a shame. Have you considered Clearing options or would you rather just stick with that university?

Aston is really where I want to go to so i dont really wanna clear anywhere else. I reckon with the grades I have and the offer Aston have given me I wont get into a business school good enough.

If you're set on Aston then it sounds like the foundation degree is a good bet. At least that gets you into the university and also gives you a taste of their style of teaching which will be beneficial on the full degree.

Just make sure you look carefully at the details because I was offered a foundation year from Aston but I only found out after accepting that it was actually going to be a 5 year course because they make you do a placement year. This was for business management btw.

Yeah they make you do a foundation year no matter what unless your an international student. However, there are so many benefits to a placement year that make that 1 year worth it.
