Over the moon got an offer from Exeter! They are asking me for AAB even though the course is AAB/ABB. Does this mean if I only got ABB at the end of A2's that I wouldn't get a place?

It means that you need to achieve AAB to be guaranteed a place in the course. If you achieve ABB then they will most likely still consider you if there are spaces left in the course but nothing is certain.

If you got ABB, you may be in a slightly better position than somebody with an ABB offer achieving BBB, but they don't have to accept you if you get ABB. Bear in mind that the lower grade set on uni websites is usually for students with some kind of extenuating circumstance like a poorer background.

As has been said many times on this forum this year, if an offer is expressed as a grade range, the lower offer is usually "contextual" i.e. for students from disadvantaged backgrounds or with extenuating circumstances.

If you get ABB, you will not be guarenteed a place on the course. As has been said, on results day, it is possible you would be let in with this result anyway, but this is definately not guarenteed. Any decisions about offers to accept/reject should be based on needing AAB to be let in.
