    I got an offer for AAB for Biology with a year in industry (A in Biology, A in Geography and B in Chemistry) but I really don't think I've got a B in Chemistry. My coursework grade was really bad and I don't think I did enough to pull it up to a B. I'm hoping I got a C maybe, do you think they'd let me in with AAC? Anyone know of anyone where this has happened?

    Also if you do drop a grade, is it then more of a matter of how close you were, say a few marks? Do they take that into consideration?

    Fingers crossed but I'm going to prepare for clearing just in case...

    I do know a few people who have dropped a grade and still just offered the place, I wouldn't worry too much My offer for biomed is ABB so I can't see why they wouldn't allow AAC

    Ah thank you! :-) that has made me feel a bit better. I'm just hoping they're a bit lenient!

    Aw man! I'm sure you'll get it soon enough But just to be on the safe side I suggest calling them up once again and get it all done with sooner rather than later

    Manchester is my firm, and provided I meet my conditions I plan to move into private accommodation this summer. I need to find someone else I can share with - I plan on sharing with no more than 1 or 2 other people to keep things quiet, and female only. Is anyone else in the same situation I'm in?

    I'm afraid that you almost certainly will need that B :sadnod:
