    For example I've firmed a University needing AAB for me to meet the conditions, if I get AAA on results day can I go through adjustment to choose another University also wanting AAB?

    For adjustment, I believe you have to exceed your offer by two grades, but I'm not sure. I don't know if you have to switch to a course with higher entry requirements, but:

    For your situation, UCAS Extra (which opens in a month or so) seems like a better bet, whether or not you would be able to go through adjustment.

    You can go to a uni that asks for the same grades. The important thing is that you have to meet and exceed your firm offer - which you will have of you get AAA.

    With Adjustment you get to keep your firm offer whilst looking for an alternative. With Extra you must decline all other offers. Think carefully if you decide to use Extra because it doesn't really sound like it's right for you at all.

    yes, you've exceeded your offer. However few people get in through adjustment. The other university doesn't have to offer you a place but if they are in clearing they might.

    It's not the case that you have to exceed your offer by two grades.

    I imagine OP is looking at using adjustment because she won't have to reject the offers she already has. Also, applying via extra means you can't have an insurance choice, which is fairly important if you haven't taken your exams yet.

    The course may not be available via adjustment, but if this is the case, it's even less likely to be available via UCAS Extra.
