Don't want to deviate too much more off topic, but Bristol's minimum requirement is A100: Minimum of 5 GCSEs at grade A/A* to include English Language, Mathematics and two science subjects(Original post by Straight up G)
Yep similar to Liverpool then, who do your top 9, valuing A/A* as 2 and B as 1
So 6As and 3 Bs is minimum requirement, and 13A*s is the same as 9As and a B (for entry requirement purposes).
The key word being; entry requirement purposes. I'm sure few people get in with grades on, or just surpassing the entry requirements, and I think that it's likely that Bristol do place much more emphasis on GCSEs than the minimum says.
and they say they give credit up to 8 A/A*s - I always took that to mean anything beyond was superfluous? Bit late in the application cycle to be finding this out
To the OP, I do think the standard in terms of reems of academic/EC/work experience is probably a bit higher on TSR simply compared to what I've come across in real life; I've met plenty of candidates just as good as the general standard here, but the weakest (on paper) candidates don't seem to post much and are under-represented.
I'd echo people up-thread saying that the key difference is how well-informed applicants are on TSR compared to real life IME.

Is the standard on TSR higher? watch
