I’m thinking of applying to Lancaster for Psychology to start in 2022 but my grades are currently ACC and they require AAB, is there any chance I’ll get in or should I just not bother?

When you say your grades are currently ACC, do you mean that's what your school will be putting as the predicted grades on your UCAS form? Or just the grades you are getting on assessments at present?

It will depend on the standard of other people who apply no no-one will know for certain at this stage - especially since you are two grades below the requirements. Its worth applying but be prepared for No, and make sure your other choices are more realistic.

https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho....php?t=6904136 Post number 10, I posted the list of all of the courses that were advertised in clearing in August of 2021 and psychology is there, so they could take a reduced offer.
Unrelated but my youngest is looking at zoology and they advertises as AAB, but clearing this year they was taking in BBB. So Most definitely keep them in mind, even as a clearing option its worth looking at.

Thank you my eldest studies at Lancaster, so we know a bit about the uni. Youngest is in year 12, she also is doing psychology, as well as biology and geography. Shes going to Chester this weekend on open day as its BBC/BCC. Noticed psychology is BBC/BBB there, so worth checking it out as an option

ohh what is she studying, how is she finding it?? it’s definitely my top choice right now but i’m also applying to manchester, edge hill and UCLAN, so far i haven’t got a fifth option so i actually might check out chester since those grades are more achievable

She does particle physics and cosmology and in 2nd year. She loves lancaster and the course. It was hard starting when covid restrictions were on, but was fortunate to get on with all of her housemates, as well as getting into group chats with her subject group and they met for walks when things were shut back then. Second year has been better and she with her friends 3-4 times a week, whether its gaming, disney soc, badminton or to the pub.

One good thing that Lancaster and Chester have in common is they have great character. Chester city is bigger though, so it will have more eateries etc, and looked at the 'things to do in Chester' and seems they have a lot From your selections they are in the north west region so it could be a maybe Still put Lancaster on the list if you really want to go for it. You do have 5 choices, so what ever you choose, make sure they have a good range of entry requirements. 1-2 aspirational choice, 2-3 choices which are achievable goals, and 1 choice which is a slightly lower grade boundary. Then come feb march next year, you will have a more of an understanding as to where you are at academically and make a better more informed choice of your firm/insurance. You might in the next 3 months go from ACC to AAB, so worth a go

poor her, first covid year was definitely very hard but it’s starting to die down now and things are going back to normal so hopefully everything will be fine by next year. also that’s amazing, i’m also thinking of doing badminton because i’ve always had an interest and recently i’ve been taking classes, i’m pretty sure it’s one of Lancaster’s focus sports too??

thank you so much though this really did help, i definitely think i could get at least one of my grades up so hopefully i’ll end up making it

Hi j45474,

I see you've already got some replies, but thought I'd add my thoughts.

I think its worth applying, but before you do its potentially a good idea to talk to the Psychology admissions team.
Showing that you are eager, and have initiative comes off well, and gives you the opportunity to potentially explain any extenuating circumstances (if there are any) / if you believe you'll get higher grades than your predicted.

I didn't have the required grades or subjects, (although subjects was due to extenuating circumstances), but I had a conversation with the admissions team, and I was given an offer. I didn't end up getting the correct grades, but I still got let in- remember they are looking at you as a whole person; they want to make sure you'll be able to stand under the rigor of the degree.

I've really enjoyed my time here, and definitely recommend.
In a nutshell, there aren't any guarantees of course, but it can't hurt to give it a go

Hope this helps,
Abby, Student Ambassador

Here's the admissions email for all undergraduate courses where you can talk through your application [email protected] but if you have any more questions about the psychology course, here's the email for the department [email protected] . Hope that's helpful!
