Hey all, I'm new here.

I've firmed an offer from Exeter for accounting and finance- 36 IB points.
Thing is, I'm only predicted 33 points. Now on UCAS it that they'd offer 33 to 36, so fair enough.

But I don't know how to interpret the huge difference... I mean it's ridiculously hard to go up 3 points in 6 months and maintain the grades you're already at. My subjects and predictions are
Higher
English- 5
Chemistry- 6
Biology- 6

Standard
Maths- 6
Economics- 5
French- 4

I've been thinking it's basically a rejection but maybe they just like the IB and wanted me to work hard? What do you guys think?

-Sorry if that all seems a little flustered

it sounds like they'd be willing to accept you if you managed to get 36 points but if you miss the offer you won't get in. i doubt they'd give you an offer of 36 but then let you in anyway if you got 33, even if the entry requirements say 33-36 or whatever. the only number that matters is what you were given by them. if you've got your heart set on exeter, talk to your teachers and see if they have any advice or think that it's even achievable for you to go up by three points now if not, you could always firm it but have your insurance somewhere you wouldn't mind going if it seems likely you won't get into exeter.

all the best
