I want to apply to QMUL aerospace engineering foundation and the requirements are BBB, I already have ACC in maths, further maths and physics, these are real grades and not predicted as I took a gap year. Could I still get accepted, and would I need to call them?

You'd have to ask, but you are two grades below their requirements - the answer is likely to be no. They do have a foundation year, you could look into that.

Edit: ah, sorry, missed that you are already applying for the foundation year. No harm in asking but chances are they will say no altogether at that point.

You have achieved grades - so its different to applying with predicted grades that might improve in August, yours are fixed.
However, its still worth phoning the Uni on Monday and asking.

qmul is usually quite lenient so no harm in trying

Hello,

I'd suggest still applying. I know of instances where people who didn't meet the grade requirements have been told no over the phone but still received a place after applying through UCAS. A strong personal statement will definitely help!

All the best
