    I've applied to RHUL for computer science, and I am still waiting for a reply. Their standard offer is ABB. However, I already have AA, and I'm doing a third A-Level in the summer (no predicted grades since it's self-taught).

    Will their standard offer to me be AAC, or will it be like AAB? AAC = ABB in terms of UCAS points, and of course AAB would be above the standard offer. I just don't know, really.

    Any advice is appreciated!

    It would be ABB still its just anything above that will get you in, the fact you have it already doesnt change anything.

    Nobody can predict this. Some unis (like Edinburgh) have minimum standards, and you need at least a B to get in. So if you were applying to Edinburgh you would not get an offer of AAC - other unis have similar poplicies, so RHUL may do this. Equally, some unis think that it's easier to get higher grades if you do fewer subjects at a time, so you may get an offer of AAA - you don't have to juggle as many deadlines when you do two subjects, and then a further one. However, they might be impressed with your self teaching, and realise that it's harder than attending lessons, so give you a lower offer.

    It's safest to assume you'll be asked for a B and work hard to achieve it.
