    Hi i want to apply for IR at Kings College London. On the website it clearly says that the entry requirement is AAA, however there are a number of threads in which people have said that they have been offered AAB. (most are AAB). why could this be?

    These may be the entry requirements for the new applicants so it's actually increased?
    Last year it could have been AAB, entry requirements change from year to year and the website may have been updated.

    As above, the grade requirement might have increased for a 2015 start (some unis update the websites well in advance of the UCAS cycle starting). Or perhaps they just really liked those applicants, or they realised they weren't getting enough people accepting offers or enough applicants, so they lowered the grades... Basically: it's depends, and we can't tell you with 100% certainty.

    You might need AAA predictions to get an offer, but once you have got the offer they could only ask for AAB. If you apply with AAB predictions they have enough applicants who are better than you, so you probably won't get in.
