Hello, I applied for English Literature at Bristol (and other universities) 3 weeks ago today and heard back from Bristol yesterday. I was expecting to get an offer of A*AA as that's what is in thier prospectus and what they said at the open day, but I've got an offer of AAB! What's going on here?

I am a UK student, was predicted the A*AA, got four As at AS and good GCSEs at a relatively good college! Any ideas why it's so low compared to the listed offer grades??

Thanks

Even if you think your college is 'relatively good,' check if it's on Bristol's bottom 40% of schools list. If it is, that's why. And anyway, an AAB offer is never a bad thing.

Sometimes universities actually give lower offers to the students they actually want in order to enciurage them to make them choose their uni as their firm.

One of my students got the same offer from the same course with the same predictions, so it must be a thing they are doing this year.
