    I'm hoping to begin studying Religion and Theology at The University of Manchester in September, I've been given a conditional offer of ABB and I was just wondering whether my A would have to be in religious studies? And also if I attained AAC is it likely I would still be accepted?

    The A doesn't have to be in RS unless it explicitly says so in the offer :nah:

    As for your second question, ee don't know. It depends on a number of things, which change year-by-year and course-by-course
    - if they have already filled all the places with people who did meet their offer, or if they still have a few spaces left
    - if they think they can fill up their remaining spaces with better quality candidates by going through clearing or by accepting people who just missed their offer
    - whether the grades that you actually got were ABB / equivalent or above (universities can be fined for over-recruiting people with BBB or below; this is not the case for people with ABB+ or equivalent)
    - how narrowly you missed your offer
    - if there was anyone else who missed their offer by a narrower margin
    - whether you are an international student (if you are, then you are more attractive because you pay higher fees, and the government can't fine the university for over-recruiting internationals)
