Resits: We welcome applications from students who have tried to improve their examination grades by taking a maximum of one set of resits. We treat these applications in the same way as other applications. However, if you have had more than one attempt at improving your grades, your application will be considered on an individual basis and we reserve the right to make an amended (higher) offer, or not make an offer. Whilst the grades listed here are our entry requirements, we understand that predicted grades are only estimates, so we consider applications where predicted grades are slightly below our entry requirements if their overall application is strong. However, we do not issue initial offers below the specified grade criteria. We also consider applicants who have achieved a minimum of BCC grades on a case-by-case basis, provided their application is strong, they have a robust academic reference, and any gaps in their academic record are explained.
