I would like to know if UoM accept access student if they don't meet the entry requirement.
For example I have 2 merits and the rest is all distinctions. I have applied for law and criminology and got an offer so I am a bit stressed as I couldn't not manage to gett all distinctions.

Those are still great results so don't be disheartened - you should be proud to have achieved merits and distinctions!

It'll probably depend upon how popular the course you've applied to is as to whether the university can be flexible on their stated entry requirements - and how much flexibility there is in that.

If you already have an offer but haven't quite reached the grades initially stated, it is certainly worth speaking with the university admissions team to discuss rather than making the assumption you won't get in.

Likewise, if you've yet to get a formal offer but are worried, drop an email or have a chat with university admissions and they can talk you through your options - at Keele, for example, we have a Foundation Year option that provides an alternative route into undergraduate study and is tailored to those who don't quite meet entry requirements, or who are seeking to change subject area for their degree.

Hope that helps!

Amy

Hello, my wife got into Manchester this year as a mature student. Contact the faculty as soon as you can, make yourself known, discuss the results, ask if there's anything you could do to add to your portfolio – also discuss your work experience (even if not directly relevant).

Mature students bring skills that people straight out of college don't if they have been in work – you can organise, plan, probably have developed critical thinking skills and so on.

But above all, contact the faculty, be honest and ask them what they want (then get it!) rather than guessing

Hi there H&A

As Lucy from Keele University says those are GREAT results!

Definitely contact the university direct and discuss your results with them. They'll be happy to hear from you and help you out.

Let us know if there's anything else we can halp answer for you.

UoM will most likely let you in. They usually have a large number of international students, but because of the Coronavirus they'll be losing 80-90% of them. A lot of UK students also plan on deferring, so at this point universities will just be scrambling to fill places. You also have pretty good grades already, so you will be fine
