My predicted grades are very low (BCD), so I'm not aiming to top unis. If I get higher grades on results day than I expected, I will go through Adjustment.
Maths = B
Chem= C
Biology= D

Those grades are fine - most of these forums only show people at the top of the grades but you've done some hard A levels so hold your head up high.

Reading
Oxford Brookes
Cardiff
MMU
Bangor
Lincoln

These are places I think you can go to for Zoology with those grades.

Because your A levels are strong ones - it might be worthwhile contacting some unis with BCC or BBC as their grades to see if they would consider you. That could then be the aspirational one.

Do you think you will get those results or better or worse?

If a uni has a foundation year that it runs it may offer you for the BSc and Foundation course with one application.

Will you get any contextual offers. Is your school or home in an area that qualifies? If you are not sure check out the uni websites looking at contextual.

If you think your Biology could be improved to a C then ask for them to predict higher to secure offers. Don't if D is where you think you will be come May/June

Hi there,

Have a look at our Zoology course here: https://www.bangor.ac.uk/courses/und...e/c300-zoology
Bangor is the perfect place to study Zoology, here are a few reasons why:
- TV presenter Steve Backshall is now part of our teaching team.
- We have a natural history museum with a comprehensive collection of insects and vertebrate material, marine and freshwater aquaria, a herpetarium, small mammal facilities, and a suite of environmentally-controlled rooms.
- Our location is an ideal place to study zoology as we have an extensive range of local terrestrial and aquatic habitats for field trips, including the University’s botanic gardens at Treborth.

We have some Open Days coming up - virtual and in person - you can register here: https://www.bangor.ac.uk/openday

I would be happy to answer any questions for you or provide you with more information if you wish
Anna

Hi amazingleo

Its good to hear you are exploring your options! We offer BSc(Hons) Zoology here at Manchester Met. You can find our course here: https://www.mmu.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/course/bsc-zoology

For the course we require 104-112 UCAS points and we require A- Level Biology at Grade C or above ( with a pass in the practical element) & we require GCSE English Langauge and Mathematics at Grade C/4 or above.

I can see from your other responses you are predicted a D in Biology, however, i would not let this put you off from applying. As you can apply for a course if your predicted grades are slightly below the advertised requirements. The Admissions Team will consider the whole of your application including your personal statement, reference and any relevant work experience you may have.

I thought it might help to tell you a bit about our course. Our Zoology course is accredited by the Royal Society of Biology!

On the course you will learn in high-spec laboratories, including a specialist microbiology and cell/molecular biology lab, a DNA-sequencing lab, specialist animal behaviour facilities with Ethovision and Observer software, invertebrate behaviour, freshwater and terrestrial ecology labs, and controlled environment plant growth chambers.

You will be able to develop practical skills in the laboratory and in the field, both in the UK and overseas – that could include fieldwork in Portugal, Tanzania, Kenya or South America, subject to national and international travel restrictions. You can take the four-year route, spending a year studying overseas in Europe, North America or Australia, or boosting your career prospects with a 12-month placement. This will be subject to national and international travel restrictions.

We have an open day coming up on the 27th of November, if you would like to find out more about the course. Attending open days is a great chance to learn more about the course, university and you will have the opportunity to speak with course tutors to ask any questions you might have. You can register here: https://www.mmu.ac.uk/study/open-days/undergraduate

Good luck with your search!
Carly
