KCL A100 / A101 2020 Offer HoldersWatch
Hi everyone. Since I am a student with an unconditional offer, I applied for student finance through SFE yesterday. Despite the mandatory iBSc (unless opted out) we will do after year 3 of our course, the only option I can apply for is the 5 years worth of student finance loans instead of the 6 years (including the iBSc year). I was wondering if anyone else was in the same situation?
I looked at the KCL website and prospectus, and found the following text (pasted at the bottom of this post). I assumed that they would consider his A* from last year as part of the offer criteria, but I wanted to check that my understanding is correct . He has also sent an email via Kings Apply, but in the current situation, not expecting to get a reply soon. I am sure KCL are likely to have more pressing matters.
So I wanted to check if anyone else is in a similar situation, or if someone can confirm that my understanding that KCL would accept his grade from last year as part of the offer.
From the KCL undergrad prospectus:
TAKING EXAMINATIONS EARLY
While King’s encourages students to stretch themselves academically, students who are entered early for their examinations should have the potential to achieve the same grade as might be expected if they were entered in the standard year. Therefore, if you gain an A-level grade B in Year 12, this will not be considered as good as achieving a grade A in Year 13.
