    I am predicted AAC at the moment and the entry requirements of the universities which i am applying to are either ABB or BBB.

    would I still be able to get the offers??

    Is AAC better than BBB??

    I would say definitely better. But you should see what the university says themselves, email them. If it's based on UCAS points, it'd probably balance out.

    Alternatively, you could just work harder to get the B

    I'd say BBB is equal to ABC so yes imo

    Based purely on points score, yes. ABB is the same as AAC based on points. BBB is lower points than AAC.

    Technically yes, but if you get a C then with the situation as it is at the moment I'd think that most unis would probably say you haven't got a B so haven't met the requirements.

    Its harder to go from a B to an A, than to go from a C to a B so yes without a shadow of a doubt it's better in terms of achievement IMO! It could also mean that you just scewed up one subject or just one exam but you ARE clever. However, uni req's is a whole different ball game though :\

    You'd have to ask them what their policies are on it, but points wise AAC is better at 320 than BBB, being 300, so...

    Well I just finished my A levels. I was predicted AAC in history, economics and maths. I was confident that I would get AAA, and I did. But when I was looking to apply last year, everyone I spoke to said I wouldnt be considered, including Edinburgh. now im just reapplying atm >_>

    I got an AAC from my Janurary exams and Warwick said "no that does not meet your offer of BBB", so i had to take 2 exams in June to get that C to a B, so in effect I had to get AAB for my BBB offer. Hurrah.

    Have you already applied to those universities through UCAS?

    Certainly better points wise. But it depends on what your uni have asked for. If they ASKED for BBB and you didn't achieve one fo your subjects to the standard of a B, they might not let you in.

    it all depends on the uni requirement. Overall yes it is better but the uni may not accept you cos you got a C when they wanted a B (even if you have beaten the requirements for the other 2 grades).

    ^ That's exactly what happened to me.
