Hello All!
I'm currently taking a gap year having decided not to go off to uni this year. I'm now finishing up my UCAS application (again) for next year, so I already have my grades; A in psychology, B in maths and C in physics (I took GCSE French - A).
I really love this Languages and International Relations course offered by Leeds but the grade requirements are ABB (An a-level language is not necessarily a requirement).
I know Leeds is a fantastic uni so it must get a lot of applicants, and I'm not sure how competitive this particular course is. Does anyone have any experience as to how Leeds would take my application?
Thank you for reading!!

Email or phone Leeds Admissions and ask - they will know better than anyone and it's part of their job to give advice to potential applicants

Have you looked into the Access to Leeds scheme to see if you meet the criteria? They usually offer a lower offer requirement than usual. http://www.leeds.ac.uk/info/128005/a...e_admissions/2

I got offered AAB for physics and got BBB and still got accepted. It helps if you put Leeds as your first choice uni because they know that you are more likely to stay and enjoy your course if you go to your first place. I know physics is a totally different degree but just to give you a bit of hope.
