    Well, it looks like there may still be places available at Southampton for 2011 entry (according to UCAS) so you may be ok.

    Hey, I'm applying to do History at Soton and I need an AAB, with an A in History. I'm on course to (hopefully) get an A and a B in my other subjects, but History is increasingly looking like a B (I got a B in both my AS modules, one of which I'm retaking, coursework will be a high B/low A and I feel really unprepared for the final module). So do you think they'll accept ABB with a B in History.
    I study history at Soton and I am going into my third year. It seems like the majority of my course mates met or exceeded their offer however one of my friends got ABBB but he had two languages (Ancient Greek and Latin) which apparently helped him. He also got a B in History. So there is hope but I think something needs to make you 'exceptional'.

    Be positive anyway, I was sure I wouldnt get in and I did

    I put Southampton as my insurance for Biomedical Sciences and got an offer of ABB, but I'm seriously struggling with exams and was wondering how flexible they are with grades?
    A friend who's in Southampton said people got onto science courses with BBB with offers of ABB, but I'm worrying I won't even get that...
    Any advice? :/

    Does anyone think they'd be lenient for modern language courses? I'm praying they are, I need ABB and at best I think I've got AAC, I'm hoping the C won't let me down, especially seeing as it's maths and has nothing to do with the course

    No idea what your course is like but I assume you'll be fine!

    Thinking of sending a similar email to my department. Wondering what you mentioned in your initial email?

    Thanks! I just asked for the number of near miss applicants that got a place on the course last year and how likely it would be for near miss applicants to get a place this year and that was the reply. Much more helpful than I was anticipating haha!

    Lmao, in regards to my earlier post it was a troll to see how much **** I could start up.


    Quite a lot.

    The correct answer was social, since they're working as a team. Didn't realise everyone would get so butt hurt this easily.

    You can expect these kind of courses to be most competitive

    To be honest, you're just another £9,250 to the university. If you made them your firm choice I think they'll be more lenient eg) getting in with ABB on an AAA course

    This thread is 6 years old. Pretty sure the original poster has already found out their answer.

    Locking this thread.
