    Just wondering does anyone know anyone who got in these Uni's with lower grades achieved at A level than their offer? If so what A levels did they do, what grades did they achieve and what course did they apply for?

    Please reply.

    Hey there,
    A friend of mine got in for Music at Oxford this year with lower grades than were expected. Her offer was AAA (A2 in Music, Philosophy and Ethics and English Literature) but she achieved A*AB. Considering that some unis turn down students (with the same offer) for having these "unbalanced" results, it does demonstrate an understanding on Oxford's part.

    Oh cool. I wouldn't count that because it's still the same UCAS points.

    Thanks
