Standard answer: Contact the unis you wanna go to and ask them whether its worth applying with those predictions.

Here's the link for Leeds Metro:

As long as you get 200 points, why not? 180 MUST be your minimum target m8.

Pick up another AS level - some places accept 2 AS levels in place of 1 A2.

i would have done that but i seriously do not want to stay in sixth form another year, they do not have a wide variety of courses that i have interest in. but i definately want to do social work

tbh, a uni that asks for only 2 A-levels OR even 1 A-level isnt the most difficult to get into. Stay calm, and just ensure you get the 200 points. Work experience in the field is not as important as the grades.

UCAS are NOT allowed to discriminate. Where does a guy who applies for Medicine or Law expect to gain experience from?

Good luck anyways

Well yes. My local uni (London Metropolitan, of which I am NOT a student) is very low in standards, and it usually accepts 2 A-Levels.

You should navigate thru the UCAS website and get a better understanding of the uni, cos it seems you are not fully sure you know what you are doing.

But I may be wrong.

With all due respect, why are you aiming so low? Aren't your A-level grades gonna be good?
