    I was predicted that tbf, but still? I wouldn't have applied either if I knew I could get that offer, I feel like it must be a mistake
    It's not just you two as well, happening quite a lot from what I've seen

    I've also just been offered A*A*A which is ridiculous as their website says it varies between A*AA - AAB! Really all it's done is pushed them way down in my choices now

    Just got an A*A*A offer from Exeter, well excited to finally get an offer but it's an odd offer to say the least! I was planning on Exeter being my fifth choice so I think that's now gone out the window haha.

    Surely giving out such high offers is going to detract loads of people from putting it as firm/insurance because I'm presuming there's going to be lots like me who were originally planning to have them as a back up.

    ah well, hope for the best i guess :P
    yeah thats if i even get called for an interview though...and yeah i guess.
    woah looking at those unis though you probably have a really strong application...but aren't they all A*AA offers?
    Fingers crossed!
    Well Bristol would be AAB (contextual offer since I got to a bad school) But yeah pretty scary I really want an offer from Bristol:rolleyes:

    Yeah I'm exactly like you and it's so stupid because it has definitely put me off...
    I have two lower offers from higher ranked unis for economics so why would I now put Exeter down? It's now shot down to my fifth
    I just don't understand their thought process? It's turned so many people away and it feels like there punishing people for having high predicted grades !

    It makes no sense...
    I wouldn't even mind that much if we had been warned on the website that it could happen but they can't do this and not warn us!
    I never would have applied there if I knew that they would make an offer that high! I'd only understand that from Cambridge but Exeter are ranked way below at 10th and has just completely put me off now!

    You have misunderstood my previous post: I was answering whether or not I had applied to Queen Mary, not if I had received an offer (which I haven't yet).
    What other universities have you applied to?
    Oh my bad, sorry.. I've applied to Nottingham, Birmingham, Queen Mary, Loughborough and Leicester. Yourself?

        I got an A*A*A offer from Exeter on friday. My mum rang them up today to ask why it was so high and they said it was because my predicted grades are high. Bit annoying really...

          I disagree, I got an AAA offer from Nottingham since that's what I'm predicted and I don't meet the requirements for a contextual offer anyway
          Ooh really I've mostly seen a*aa offers so that's what I was guessing it was

            I'm doing Maths and Physics too! I know it must be difficult to decide which universities to apply to with your predicted grades, so if I were you, I would apply for 2 A*AA, 2 AAA, 1 AAB as A*A*B is the equivalent to A*AA.
