Once results are available, if a student meets the terms of our offer they are automatically accepted.
Where a student has ‘missed’ then entry is at our discretion. Before rejecting any applicant at this stage, we will consider all the student’s circumstances, including the reference, personal statement and performance at interview. In particular, we will always take into consideration cases where students have been ill or suffered personal problems, or have had problems at school. We prefer, however, to be informed of such difficulties prior to the release of results.
Applicants who miss the terms of an MEng offer but make the terms of a BEng offer and have York as their Firm Acceptance will automatically be offered the BEng version of their chosen course. A suitable pass mark in Year 1 then allows students to transfer to the MEng.
If students decide that they wish to defer entry, for example to undertake a year in industry, there will be no difficulty in facilitating this – again, provided we are advised before the release of the A level results in August.
