Using a foundation course as an entry requirement if I miss my grade

Bristol requires A* for A Level maths in order to study Computer Science, what if I get lower grade A or B is there any foundation courses I can do to get on to the course?
Answered by Alison Patterson
In our experience foundation courses are intended for people who are switching subject areas, not for people that miss a grade. Apart from for BA in Fine Art where it's quite normal to do a foundation course.

We could be wrong, write to Bristol about their policy at
ug-admissions@bristol.ac.uk. Especially as we're talking about a slight switch in subjects (there is a lot of maths content for computer science however).
