    they are trying to push you, think of it as a test. if you put the work in and manage to get the grade then you're worthy of a place, if you don't then you aren't a good enough standard.


    surely this offer is better than them straight off rejecting you
    This.
    They may offer you a place even if you dont quite get the grades anyway. Some unis do. Cant you resit any as modules.

    Thats all and well in fairy-land but in the real world they have a hidden agenda. I believe that they give higher offers than the predicted grades to make it extra difficult for applicants like me to get in, simply because they need some method for combating the increase in student numbers. I mean last year their offer grades were BBB standard no fuss no complications.
    Aston BBB? Trust me, you are misinformed.
    There is no hidden agenda here. Yes, high offers are made to control student numbers, which is why the more competitive universities give higher offers. For some reason, they were worried about your ability at Biology and so they want you to work harder. Did you get any Biology questions at interview?

    I think they've done that to everyone who has an offer...for instance my own offer is As in Chemistry and English and a B in Biology...So don't take it too hard. If you get AAB in the end they'll still accept you regardless of what grade to what subject apart from Chemistry that is.

    LOL I find it funny reading that last year Aston made offers of BBB, im currently studying there and can confirm that last year everyone I know who is currently in the first year got offers of AAB and there is no-one on the course who achieved less than AAB, in fact most people got higher.

    Work hard and you will do better than you expect. Have faith in yourself.
