    I have a conditional offer to study Psychology and the entry requirements are ABB, my targets meet this but I'm worried I might get ABC.

    How lenient is Liverpool with grades? Is it possible I could still get in with lower grades?

    Have a look at http://university.which.co.uk/univer...00-c800-456956 and https://unistats.direct.gov.uk/subje...eturnTo/Search

    In the past they have accepted people with lower grades (in fact the most common grades for 2014 entry were BBB). That doesn't guarantee that they will behave the same way this year (it depends how many people applied and pick them as firm this year and then how well those students do on their A levels).

    If you get ABC for an ABB offer then the subject that you get your A and C in will matter too. If the C is in something with little relevance to psychology and the A is in psych A level then you will be in a better position than someone with an A in geography and a C in psychology.

    If you're worried you can always phone them up and ask them about whether they're likely to be lenient or not. While they can't guarantee anything they might be able to reassure you about what their priorities are when the results come through.
