University entry requirementsWatch
Thanks in advance.
For Edinburgh I think they normally indicate the lower boundary is for widening access applicants, and I think on the course pages they usually indicate if a course is particularly competitive by noting something along the lines of "applicants will routinely exceed the upper entry requirement and that meeting those requirements is not guarantee you will be made an offer". At other unis it varies, sometimes it might be widening access related, sometimes it won't be (for example at Exeter its not).
Hard to say for Edinburgh, and physics is I believe relatively competitive there. If it's just one potentially "aspirational" choice then I don't think it's an issue to include it in your options even if you do get rejected though, you get 5 for a reason!
yeah that's what I was thinking go for places like Aberdeen for guaranteed place BBB which is relatively low for physics and apply to places like Glasgow which give you a range much like Exeter where widening access doesn't apply for lower boundary and harder places like Edinburgh
I received an offer from Edinburgh Uni to study Biomedical Sciences that asks for me to get ABB. However, I’m slightly worried that I may have gotten a C in maths which would make my final grades on results day ABC. Would this be an instant rejection?
Short answer: you might still get in, but no one can say how likely that is.
Hi, i am looking at a 2022 entry to university, when it comes to entry requirements I notice most university's give a range. For Physics at Edinburgh the say AAA to ABB. does the lower boundary only apply to widening access( I don't apply) or as long as i get grade between these boundaries(say ABB) will i be considered for a place.
