    That really doesn't impress me. What degree class did you get at DMU?
    a 2:1, well not that it would impress anyone but it did help me get into the University of Nottingham which I'm actually quite proud of.

    I got CCDD in my Highers and still got onto a course that needed BBBB

    p.s. that was my first uni, I later transferred to UWE for another course.

    Fair enough then, I suppose you are an exception, possibly. Where do you think you'd be now if you had decided to get a job or apprenticeship or something similar, though?

    Ask yourself why you want to go to uni: for a three year pub crawl (an expensive one too) or because you actually want to learn about a subject you love? If it's the former, don't apply, if it's the latter I would suggest doing whatever you can to improve your grades - even if it means applying next year- so you can have a choice of places to apply to rather than having to go straight to ones where you won't necesarily get the best teaching.

    One third of the offers dished out by Christ's College, Cambridge are EE. Just in case you're interested. :p:
    yeah, but there are matriculation offers, so it doesn't really count. I mean, would Cambridge really give a second look to an applicant that got EEE in their AS-Levels? and is predicted EEU? :rolleyes:

    Apparently not if you got Ds at GCSE, CDE at A level, and then attended DMU.
    OMG ashy you're such a snob! Just 'cause someone took a course in advanced discrimination between posterior and cubitus and had to retake the first year, doesn't mean they're not a high-flying academic! :mad:

    You could do this one with one D I think at A level.

    That's a foundation degree. I know Brunel accepts CDD for its foundation courses which leads to 6 months of advanced standing on Bachelors courses.

    I wasn't being serious :rolleyes:

    But the title of the thread asks for universities that accept DDD-EEE - and if you get an EE offer from Christ's then you can (god knows why you would, but whatever) go on to get EEE and still get accepted and admitted.

    Whatever.. Probably under constant racist abuse and being laughed at?? Question, have you ever seen a chinese plumber in the UK? probably not, have you ever wondered why? (the clue is in the above!).. so it's something which I aim to steer away from. Nonetheless it's something which I'm not interested in, my interest instead lies in marketing and supply chain management.

    Swansea Met.
    Oh god, I'm thinking of applying there, and I got AAA. :eek:

    Maybe UWIC would let you in with DDD or lower. I know someone who got in with CDE. On the other hand, OP, maybe you ought to think about an alternative to uni. Not everyone HAS to have a degree, despite what people seem to think these days.

    And foundation degrees are not the same as foundation courses. And one D is a lot worse than CDD.

    I meant if you're worried about there not being enough people in the working sector??
    anyone who wants to go to uni can go to uni,obviously they are not gonna apply if they dont think they are capable ,often the people who do really well at a levels dont do well as well at uni

    Is there any point in going to a uni that will take you with such grades? Just accept that you're not an academic person and get a job.
    my 'a level" grades were just as bad & i consider myself an academic
