    Just out of curiousity, has anyone else here had an offer from a University, but their conditions have been LESS than what the typical offer was stated as, on their Website/UCAS?

    For example in my case, one of my Uni's (listed below) had a typical offer for my course set at 280 points (BBC!), but I ended up getting an offer through UCAS for only 220 points! (CCD!).

    So I was of course over the moon!
    Anyone else had a situation like this?

    A friend of mine got an offer of AAB or ABBB from Nottingham for Economics, if I remember correctly, and the usual requirements are AAA/AABB

    I got an unconditional place at a University in Plymouth with ABD when they asked for BBB. I do already have my grades though, so it probably works differently.
