    Well my predicted grades are AAB and I applied to a course which was asking for 'AAB from three subjects at A Level' .. my application was unsuccessful and they've stated the reason being 'Predicted qualification grades below standard offer threshold' ... so I'm just wondering, does this mean their offer of AAB was made higher to AAA, or does it mean there were others applicants who had higher grades than me?

    the prospectus merely gives 'typical' offers. Very often the actual offer is higher. You're not doing general studies are you?

    yeh i'm doing general studies but didn't put it down on my ucas.. well when I applied the actual offer on the ucas website was also AAB.. but surely if they have put 'standard offer' that means the original offer which was put on ucas?

    I'm just hoping that's the reason for it and not that my school have f'd up and sent the wrong grades or something :l

    i understand that completely, this isn't my first rejection.. but it's confusing how they've put the reason being > that the predicted grade was lower

    The offer could be AAA. Apparently Leeds did something similar to that which upped it from AAB.

    Or if the course was really competitive then they would have cut people out who didn't have AAA for interview.

    Yeh this happened to me. I got an offer- but was expecting AAB not AAA.
