Most Russell Group universities want AAB or higher at A level, what grades would you need at AS to realistically get an offer?

Also, what do Universities take into account more, AS grades or Predicted Grades?

P.S One of my friends got BCCE at AS, and has been offered a place at Leeds University to study Economics, when their entry requirements is AAA at A level.

Which degree subject do you wish to study?I would say in most cases any lower than BBB at as might not look realistic that you will achieve AAA. They would take both into consideration.

You'd need as high grades as possible especially as many medicine applicants would have AAA at AS, AAB might be sufficent for pharmacy and chemistry but depends on the university. Have you got a range of work experience sorted?

For chemistry I dont think your AS grades will matter as much, as pharmacy and especially medicine is alot more competitive
my mate got 3 Cs at AS and she got an offer from Nottingham and Birmingham for Chemistry for ABB/AAB.

That depends on the university and course you are applying to. Some unis can be more leniant for a particular course, provided they see that you are capable of meeting the entry requirements.

My friend got AABC and got an offer from Warwick for Chemistry

Not sure how competitive pharmacy is, the only person I know who's doing it got AAAA

Medicine is a lot more competitive though, there's only one person in my school who got an offer, she got 11A* at GCSE and AAAB at AS, got offered one place and rejected from three

I Study Chemistry at a RG.

In terms of Alevels, you're looking at BCC for lower end RG's. BBB for most RG's including imperial/UCL and AAA for oxford/Cambridge.

This is coming from experience however this isnt set in stone.
