I am hoping to study International Economics at Loughborough University.
I have confirmed this course as my first choice.
Due to oversubscription, Loughborough have offered all applicants this year AAB for all Economic degrees.
How flexible are Loughborough on grades? I am predicted ABB. I study Maths, Economics and History.

10% got in with UCAS points below 320 and this includes AS levels and other non A2 qualifications which count towards UCAS points.

Need to take into account that there is an over subscription.

OP since you have already applied then since you chose them as your firm then they may be lax if you get your predicted. I would still try and get that offer. Also depends on how many meet the new offer who have chosen as firm.

Yes. There is a lot to consider. For instance, lots may have applied to Loughborough who are aiming to get in at the top Unis for Economics ( eg Warwick and Exeter ) therefore Loughborough is there back up
For me, Loughborough is my top choice! I'll try my best to get AAB but the harsh reality is I will probably get ABB. I have a strong personal statement though and work experiences including a placement at a Government Central Bank so fingers crossed ...

hmmm....looks like i was wrong, particularly for economics

Unis similar to lboro, such as surrey, have a habit of predicting high (AAB) but then taking majority ABB students. this is done to make them look better than they actually are.

surrey does this for economics. AAA is the offer, but if you look at the average grade entry for the latest intake, on whichuni.com, you will see they take mostly ABB/AAB students.

i thought this would be the case for lboro, but it looks like i was wrong. Loughboroughs average intake for economics seems to be AAB, which is true to their offer of AAB

Hiya ! I applied super early - before Oxbridge applicants were due to!
So it took four weeks from when I sent off my application
