    If the standard offer is AAB, you'll be unlikely to receive one.

    The standard offer for biology is ABB.

    I'd have thought you'd be okay.
    Maths, Chemistry & Biology are all very useful and strong subjects for a Biology application, and you're on target for the grades they're asking for.
    It'll probably come down to more how the competition (other applications) is.

    Good luck!

    Standard offer is ABB, I have an offer for ABB. However my predicted are AAB. You'll be fine with ABB anyway I should suspect, unless they really want an A in biology. It doesn't specify the A in my offer needs to be biology though.

    My daughter got to York last year (History). However, she only got offers from 3 of the 5 unis she applied for on the UCAS form, with Cambridge and Warwick not giving her an offer. She was predicted A*AA and got A*A*A (A in History). I guess I say this to say nothing is ever guaranteed, and to be prepared for the occasional shock - but to recognise it as their loss not yours.

    So long as you meet the required grades (which you have) you're in with as good a chance as anybody.

    I applied for biochem at york and they told me that though the typical offers are ABB they every year accept people from ABB-BBC because they fill it based on the people who will both most benefit from the course and who will most benefit the course and work well, not purely on test results.

    I got BBB and they said yes.

    You should be fine.
