Hi there!

I think its very hard to generalise applying for the whole university, since each degree or school will have their own requirements and preferences for applicants 🙂 Could I ask what degree/subject you're interested in? Just so I can give more tailored advice.

Hi, just saw this thread and I wanted to ask, I’m interested in applying for computer science, here are my gcse grades:
Further maths: 8
Computer science: 9
Drama, physics, biology, chemistry, geography, English language, english literature: all 6
They’re not the best and Ik people tell me I shouldn’t apply but :/

And here are the subjects I’m taking for A Levels
Computer science
Further maths
ICT
BTEC with coursework

Do I stand a chance? I can elaborate if there’s any info missing. I’m trying really hard.

Hi there,

Your GCSE grades are above the entry requirements. Here is a quote from the website:

"You must have or be working towards:
- English language or Welsh language at GCSE grade C/4 or an equivalent (such as A-levels). If you require a Student visa, you must ensure your language qualification complies with UKVI requirements.
- GCSE Maths grade B/6 or equivalent qualification (subject and grade). If you are taking A-level Maths (or equivalent), GCSE Maths is not required. Core Maths may also be accepted in place of GCSE Maths."

You can find more information here. But this shows that your achieved grades are more than adequate, then A-level entry requirements are ABB-BBB.

Regardless, I'd definitely recommend that you apply!

All the best,

Hi there,

I'm also from West Midlands! If you're interested and think that you would enjoy it here, then it's always worth applying! For accommodation, what are you looking for specifically? Socal or more quiet, en suite or shared bathroom, low budget or higher budget etc.? I can give you some suggestions based off what you're looking for 🙂
