    I have an A*AA prediction. I'm applying for medicine this October. If I apply to a university that is asking for an AAB, what are they likely to offer me?

    Thanks.

    AAB or higher depending on how much they like you.

    I'm sort of wording the same thing. My predictied grades are ABB. But if im applying to a university that wants BBB, is it pretty likely they will expect BBB rather than my predicted grades. Or could they offer me a place for ABB grades?

    thats not the question.
    Uni will never base u an offer on your predicted grades. The offer will always come as the lowest entry requirements.

    Maybe they give BBB offers to students but they expect your predictions to be at least AAA?

    Exactly - this is why many people don't get into their so-called backups..

    Not true at all.

    Many courses will give low offers to candidates that they want on the course.
    Less commonly, some will receive offers higher than the 'typical offer' (which is what most people call the minimum requirement - it's nothing of the sort).
