    I needed BBB and thats for Glasgow. I was predicted ABB/AAB and all the uni's that i applied to were the same or lower grades than that, but i only got into three of them (Durham, Glasgow, Bangor). Even Edinburgh, which only required BBB rejected me! Psychology is really hard to get into right now unfortunately. You're right, combined do usually ask for lower grades, but at some prestigious university's they ask for the same grades as single honours, sometimes even higher i believe :eek:

    Southampton are asking for AAB?! :eek: Thats really high! MA is a Masters (BA/Bsc is a Batchelors). I haven't done a BA/Bsc yet, its just the way the Scottish Universitys work, they give MA's/MSc's rather than BA's or BSc's.

    My Insurance is also BBC! I applied Plymouth(BBC)/Exeter(AAA)/Portsmouth(BBB)/Bristol(ABB)/Soton (AAB) Bath Spa (CC) Did you guys have interviews for any of the Unis? None of them rejected me but then I never had to go Interview for the place. Although exeter thought it was funny to accpet me.. if i got AAA mind you. Even if They knew i could only get AAB. Evil People.

    I didn't have any interviews - the uni's I applied to had too may applications for Psych to have time to interview them all.
    The entry requirements seem to be pretty much the same across the board don't they?
