    Well basicly,

    I applied to Kent uni at canterbury for law on the grounds that in their undergraduate prospectus 2010 book it says

    "Offer levels A/AS levels: 320 points (over 3 A levels or equivalent) Including AB at A level.

    And today I just recieved my offer from them of AAB.

    Is it wrong that they say in their book that their offer will be ABB and then give out offers of AAB?

    They haven't done anything wrong unfortunately..
    in the prospectus they tell you the average offer they can lower it or increase it
    but if you ring them they might change it

    They can give out any offer they want. Suck it up or reject it.

    Exact same happened to me with Leeds. The book said ABB, they say AAB. Nothing you can do I'm afraid other than work very hard for the grades. A lot of unis have raised their offers recently.

    Putting kent down as my firm would now be a big risk though =/ So I might have to completly reject the offer.

    At least you got an offer. Their entry requirements are generally just guidelines, factors such as your statement and reference could have made them up your offer.

    From my research, every offer iv seen given by Kent for Law has been AAB. Ahh nevermind I guess. Just have to wait and see how well I did in my last Maths exams.

    Massive increase in student applications this year means they can pick better candidates and make higher offers.

    i had the same problem when i was applying aswell

    the uni's that i was applying to all increased the grades they wanted, just before i was about to apply lol so i had to re-think it all

    they just do it because of the competition i think

    but dont worry, they'll probably offer u a conditional offer

    that happened to me, a few of the uni's that i applied to, i wasnt near there required grades, but after reading my references and personal statment they've offered me conditionals

    Try and give them a call and explain to them your concerns but in the mean time just try your hardest, that's all you can do. Goodluck!

    Are you sure that you don't have the old prospectus, cos that's what the grade requirements were last year, and I heard that they were increased this year.

    Nope it's not wrong that they did that. It usually says 'typical offer:.......', meaning that it isn't always necessarily that offer. Even if it doesn't say that, they can still make whatever offers they like. Look on the bright side - it's an offer .

    They perhaps decided they would only be interested in you if you got those points?

    Or it could be that they raised their overall standards due to the amount of promising applications they received.
