    If this was possible everyone would do this. Universities have their offers set at a certain level for a reason.

    I guess a possibility would be to get your school to contact the university and ask for a lower offer, if there are special circumstances or a good reason why you are unlikely to get an A grade in your third subject. It would probably sound better coming from them than from you.
    Also, is your offer on UCAS Track yet? I know somebody who asked for a lower offer after recieving an offer letter (but before it was communicated via UCAS) and their offer was withdrawn. However, it should be fine if it's on UCAS... Correct me if I'm wrong, but once a conditional offer is put on UCAS Track, it can't be taken away right?
    I doubt they'd alter your offer though, unless there was a good reason.

    OMG which university was that? I would have been gutted if it was me... but then if a uni gave me an offer I would try to meet it rather than asking for a new one.

    It was Imperial for Physics, a good few years ago. The person in question ended up firming Warwick and going there instead (but they didn't meet the original imperial offer anyway, so would have still gone there if they'd have just firmed the AAA Imperial offer and put Warwick's AAB as insurance.)

    I think its worth a try, ive emailed a university asking how flexible they are in which they replied there is some flexibility apart from I need at least a B in Maths. Which gave me the impression I could probably go a grade lower in each (more likely just the one though) apart from Maths which needs to be grade B.

    Worth a try, whats the worst thats going to happen?

    As an aside, What if the Uni has gone completely ott?

    Or is the below standard? I don't really know the system that well but:

    As in, an AAB offer compared to everyone else getting BBB when the ''typical'' offer is indeed BBB.
    Admittedly I got ABC and resitting the C, But surely Asking AAB is harsh? Given that my subjects are now legacy

    Or do I take the hint they don't want me at the uni?
