    Keele asked for BBB for psych + philosophy got BCD but still got accepted.. I think my welsh bacc counted as a B. Crazy to think I may have not got into uni at all without it.

    I missed my offer for Psychology and Sociology at Aston by one grade. BBB instead of ABB, now I work for them. Would be slightly ironic if they had of rejected me.

    Yup, this year. Their standard offer is AAA and I got their contextual offer of AAB. I was perplexed by my grades and them still allowing me in :L However I did have some mitigating circumstances, so might've swayed them a bit.
