    theres this guy in our year who got
    a few A's but mostly B' and C's at GCSE
    got CDD for his AS level

    this year he begged to the teachers to predict him ABB

    And yet managed to get an offer for maths and computer science at
    IMPERIAL!!!!!
    the usual offer Imperial give for this course is AAA yet for him they have given BBB!!!

    how unfair is this...plus he does do any sports,debating, YE, DOE, community etc. Ive known him for 5 to 6 years now and he dossed about all his school years (and almost got suspended once!!) yet now he only has to get BBB to go to a world famous uni

    Well he's a lucky dude. But don't worry about it. If he flunks at Imperial, then he'll have wasted a year. If he does well, then you know that he deserved the chance to go to a good uni. Entry to a uni isnt the be all and end all because there's so much life after that.

    But I do understand exactly how you feel.

    Does anyone else feel as if they have to take a bow to this guy?!This is amazing ****,it honestly is!Are you sure he's not pulling your leg?It just proves studying your life away is not necessarily gonna get you where you wana be.I know this girl at my 6th form who got 8A*s and 4A's at GCSE and will definitely get 4A's this year but she has not had one offer. She is waiting on her last uni.This uni stuff is just so unpredictable.

    Sukh.

    I know someone who was predicted BBC who got an offer of AAB for Biochem at Imperial. She obviously didn't meet the grades, but why the hell did they give her that offer in the first place??? Really stupid.

    Sounds like he is pulling your leg but even if he isn't, if he is getting that at AS, I don't see how he can pull up his grades by that much. I mean maybe one grade on each fair enough, but that would only give him BCC. Anyways if he is a major dosser, he won't survive the first year and get kicked out haha, what a waste of money for him.

    With the amount of work this guy's doing he probably won't even get BBB? Unless he's actually quite clever and is just lazy. In that case he's a lucky *******.

    termint3 i can understand how u might feel
    if u worked hard for ur uni place and some guy simply gets a offer
    by just dossing bout and not even getting the right grades (GCSE and AS)

    im more curious about why imperial actaully gave the offer.
    dont say "future potential" cos with weak (CDD?) grades like it it not a good foundtion for future sucess and potential

    Also i thought to do a demanding subject like comp sci (esp at IMperial) u needed to really good at maths ...and this guy got a C or D at AS! ??

    something fishy here

    yeah and you need maths for the course, the highest grade he has at AS is a C, so let's assume that that is maths, how could you survive the course if you're getting a C at AS, unless you have a really good excuse. I mean seriously... the course is very maths intensive....

    Well good luck to him...I know someone who got rejected from LSE BSc Economics with 5 A's at AS (Predicted AAA AA). She also had v.good GCSE grades. just shows its not all about what u been predicted.
