    Sorry for poor wording of the title, but if a university says you have to get BBB and you get ABC at A2 would you still be able to get in? ( stupid question)

    I've popped this in Applications & UCAS for you

    It's not a stupid question at all!

    It's up to the university whether they accept grades that sort of 'balance out' like in the example you have given. Technically, ABC would not satisfy the requirements of a BBB offer, and so they would be entitled to reject you, since, for a BBB offer, one must achieve at least a B in each of the three subjects.

    Hope that helps.

    It depends. If the university wants a baseline of B across the board, then no, you won't get in. If they are more flexible and are prepared to work on an equivalent points basis, then yes, they'd let you in.
