    That does sound convincing, as I got my offer back in November and I've heard of lower offers only this week! Praying that's the reason and they're more lenient!!!

    Someone in the facebook group for notts got a lower offer ages ago

    I wouldn't be sure about why they are lowering grades. My son got offer of A*AA with 7A* 4As at GCSE (during the death of his dad)
    4A's at AS and hoping to get another A at AS as he is fast tracking another A Level
    A*A*AA predicted for A level
    LNAT 31
    Surely he should have had an AAA offer
    no offence but it's a bit annoying if you keep screaming about someone losing his dad to get special treatment, clearly he's capable of achieving high grades and they do not see the need to offer a contextual offer on that basis, especially as he has A's in his AS and those who do receive these types of offers are seen as not able to achieve the standard requirements at A2 and the fact that you say he's predicted A*A*AA why would they offer AAA

    so yh..

    My prediction is that perhaps if you applied / were given an offer early on it would likely be A*AA as that was standard. But if you applied later (for arguments sake after Christmas) or they only made a decision on your application fairly recently you would be more likely to be given the lowered AAA because they have realised they have rejected too many high calibre students early on or have realised that the standard of this years applicants is lower than normal. Bearing in mind this is just my view I wouldn't take this for fact but merely a view to consider...
    Given the competition for Law, do you really think any University would be dropping its requirement half-way through the cycle? Or that they are half-witted enough to reject 'high achieving applicants'?

    By the way he wasn't asking for AAA but someone mentioned that perhaps applicants may be getting AAA offers because they have great grades. I also mentioned if you read my other post that I thought it was fair to have contextual offers for applicants from low performing schools.

    Guys Nottingham has different entry requirements for international applicants and EU/UK applicants for law. International applicants require AAA and EU/UK applicants require A*AA. I saw this in a prospectus and confirmed with admissions. I hope this clears things up!

    I guess it's because in some countries there are no A*. A is the highest grade possible.

    Not really cause the AAA grade is for the normal A level (Edexcel, Cambridge etc.) which is the same no matter where you are in the world. I'm pretty sure it's because they want more money and that equates to more international students coming to Nottingham.

    Oh thanks! That sounds like a legitimate reason. I am an international and was offered AAA.

    I'm not sure but guess A2 A*AA in the UK are the same as A*AA elsewhere, aren't they?

    kind of hypercritical of you to ask me to get of my 'high horse' when all you've been doing is saying how great your sons achievements were
