    Probably somebody has got in with none.
    Eg you arrive in this country after GCSE and then you sit IB.
    There are also exceptional cases where somebody failed to sit exams because of serious ongoing illness or a family death on the day of exams and so forth.

    Without exceptional circumstances and for many subjects there will be many people with poor GCSE grades who improved hugely for A2. The current offer is A*AA or A*A*A and that's what you have to get.

    You probably can get in with 2 GCSEs and A*A*A* at A-Level but you can't get in with 12A* GCSE and BCC A-Levels if you get my drift :-)

    High achievers used to get "EE" matriculation offers in certain cases. i.e. get 2 Es in your A-levels. Those days are gone.

    GCSEs are not a major factor for most subjects (except, Medicine and perhaps Law).For A-levels this table might help - but as Colmans says you really need to achieve (or, rather, be on target for) the typical offer unless you have extenuating circumstances.

    I doubt if those who got EE offers ever actually "got in with" EE as they were usually given to those who were expected to get AAA in the days when there was no A*.
    I had a friend who got an EE offer in 2009 which was effectively unconditional as he already had AS grades that covered it. He went on to get D1D1D2 in Pre-U, D1 being the grade above A* (if it existed).

    Yes, fair point. I was more thinking about the offer, than the achievement.

    LOL, althought we don't know the circumstances - perhaps they also had overseas qualifications or ECF... eitherway they didn't get offers...

    Well i got an offer with very low gcse's and AS levels with no ecf.
    GCSE's were 2A's rest Bs Cs and 2Ds. AABD in Maths, FM ,Physics and Chemistry. UMS was reasonably high in M FM something like 580/600 which was decent and decent performance in the Maths Olympiads.
