    Wondering why Exeter offer A*AA for a lot of courses when other universities ranked higher than them (e.g. Warwick) offer AAA for the same course. Has it always been like this or are Exeter 'on the up'? Thanks.

    On a lot of courses Exeter has a relatively limited number of places available but has a very high number of applicants. It also attracts a lot of applications from students who are predicted high A level grades.

    Therefore to try and ensure that they both fill the number of places they have but without having far too many students meeting their offers (which would cause them a problem) they set their offers high.

    I'd caution against placing too much faith in rankings and entry requirements regarding the quality of courses. Warwick being above (or not) Exeter has little to no bearing on offers. Entry requirements mostly depend on supply and demand, individual circumstances, and they're sometimes inflated for prestige.
