If you get a uni offer based on the higher range is that considered a good thing or a bad thing?
I have heard that if they really want someone than unis give a the lower end of the offer range. Is that true? What do people think?
If you get the higher end offer would they reduce it to the lower end of their offer range if my results don't come up to scratch?
Uni offers question? Watch

They give you an offer they'll think you'll meet, most likely. Sometimes they want to stretch you and expect you to achieve a certain grade given your circumstances.
Nah, they don't do that. They give out more offers then they have places so they don't expect everyone to either meet the offer (although afaik they don't give out offers if you don't suit them) or accept the offer should they meet it. Yes, if you fail to have an offer they might still take you depending on the amount of students they have already enrolled, but don't hold your breath.Last edited by Sulphur; 05-01-2013 at 01:22.

Unis want to be your firm. Many applicants wrongly choose their firm due to grades - so a uni that makes a high offer is more likely to be placed as firm. They might just be making a high offer as they want you to go there and want you to pick them.
