urgent-uni transfer Watch
Yes transfer into 2nd & yh I'll have to email-i can't transfer this year as I didn't get the a level grades but if I get high results at the end of year 1 surely that shows I can achieve & they may let me on?
Yeah I’m in this situation too. I stated uni this year but want to transfer to York/Sheffield next year but they said only from year 1. Plus loads of people have said year 2 is a big step up from year 1 and people usually end up failing when they transfer
Oh so you'd have to start again?& not necessarily cos you've already experienced a year of uni. I want to transfer somewhere closer to home as I'm not sure if I can hack being away
Again, this differs for unis. But Ik York/Sheffield don’t do second year transfer. But a lot of top unis accept this so I think it’s a good idea. Both the unis I asked said they’d need 60% overall with no fails
Not like oxford, UCL etc. But unis like Birmingham, York and even KCL. It just depends on the course but they usually allow it with high results. I’ve researched a lot coz of I got crap a levels and want to change unis next year too 😂
It will depend on course/subject, compatibility of units, your grades, their overall policy and availability of places.
Some Unis may allow you to transfer into Year 2. Others may insist you repeat Year 1.
The only way you'll find this out is by contacting the 'new' University.
Omgggg Birmingham!do they accept first year transfers if u obtain a high grade at the end of year 1?it was my firm(uob) but didn't get the grades & law is my course & looool were in the same boat
I didn't hate my subjects(minus English lit) but generally across all 3 subjects the papers were acc quite easy-so I thought if I couldn't perform well with easy papers I won't be able to do it with harder papers & personally I thought I gave a levels my all & people retake cos they think they can do better but I don't think that's the case with me. My gut feeling was to not retake & it might cost me but I have hope & faith in god that everything will turn out ok & hopefully my first year grade is high so I can transfer to uob or uni of Leicester
