    HELLO FELLOWS

    I've been v cheeky and been v ambitious with my choices. I am predicted AAB (A in History, A in Classics, B in Eng Lit) and have applied to Exeter and Lancaster, which both offer AAB contextual, however have very high standard entry requirements. What do you think the chances are of me getting offers from either?

    Are you asking if i qualify for contextual? If so, yes i do. AAB is the lowest contextual Exeter offer and the lowest contextual Lancaster offer

    In that case you stand a good chance. What subject?

    BA History single honours (Exeter campus for Exeter), Main campus for Lancaster. I have a good personal statement that's been checked by the admins officer for Uni of Nottingham, do you think that will help also?

    as you meet the contextual conditions you have a good chance of getting an offer from Exeter. I am not aware of Lancaster doing the same. usually when they show a mix of grades you get the lower offer if you get a set grade in a particular subject. For example the normal offer for Maths is AAA but if you get grades A in Maths and Further Maths you get AAB

    There is really nothing to say what the reason is for History but my suspicion for is if you get grade A History you will get AAB but otherwise it will be AAB. Your best bet is to check with the admissions tutor

    Yes, that can't hurt at all.

    Watch out for Exeter rejecting you for Streatham, but offering you Penryn instead. I would avoid the latter - the course has little choice of modules and most of the lecturers simply aren't in the same league as those in Exeter.
