    the entry grades for my subject, American studies are 240-300 ucas points (CCC-BBB)
    And I've been offered 280 points (BBC).
    I got CCC at AS level and I am predicted BCC at A level and feel that due to personal problems which have caused me to underachieve that this is the best I can do.
    I was just wondering if anyone knows how firm they are with their offers as I don't think offering me over my predicted is very realistic.
    Also, I have sent an email explaining those personal issues to another University who dropped their offer to BCC for me when their typical offer is BBC-BBB, My UCAS advisor said she would attach a note to my application explaining these issues however she 'forgot' to do so and sent it without the note, I haven't had time to personally email all my choices with the details since I only received this offer less than 24 hours after sending my application, can offers be changed by the university once they have been sent to you or is it not possible?

    Even Portsmouth wont know how flexible they can be until results week in August. It depends on the decisions and exam performance of thousands of applicants.

    If you want a note attached to your application then ideally this should come from your referee not from you. Get them to contact Portsmouth directly.
