Hey! So it’s a very long story but I wanted to know if I can get into Birmingham uni or any other one with bad grades? I have English 4 retakin maths so hopefully a 4! A science is a 3 and my school won’t allow me to retake, my health and social care and childcare was a pass for gcses. For a levels I’m currently in yr 12 but I’m doing voc childcare development L3 my dumb ass didn’t realise I cant get into uni with this course so I’m going to try change my course to health and social care level 3. Do u think I’d get into uni childs nursing with 4 Gcses? Idk I feel so messed up man covid ruined everything

Have you looked into foundation year courses? You don’t really need A levels or equivalents to get on and it’s just an extra year. Health and social care L3 is only equivalent to 1 A level and most unis want a minimum of 3 for a standard course

Hi Needyherapyhilol,

I would recommend you talk with your school adviser as well as email the UoB course admissions for possible guidance and help. UoB offers scholarships to students who live close to or near Birmingham that you could apply for, where they look at your circumstance as a whole and give you lower requirement grades to join the degree course.

So I am an A2B student because I live in the West Midland region and I applied for Aerospace Engineering. Normally, to get into Aerospace at UoB, the required A-Level grades are AAA but due to my situation and circumstance, I applied to A2B and had my offer grades lowered to ABB.

On the other hand, you can also apply for a foundation year at the University. It's a year you do before the actual uni degree and the next year will be the start of the first year of the actual degree. A foundation year can be seen as a stepping stone into the world of higher education, particularly if you don't have the right qualifications to go straight onto a degree programme. As an alternative route into university, a foundation year can ease you back into the education environment while providing access to a range of undergraduate courses.

Hope this helps, take care Needyherapyhilol!
