    hey if you get AAC and they ask for ABB , i'm sure you'll be fine, dunno about the other one though

    what are you going to do there?

    I had a friend who got offered ABB for Sheffield and got AAC, and they didn't have enough room to take her that year- but they did give her a place for the year after. Of course, it depends on what everybody else got on results day too

    What are you going to study?

    That's because he was Welsh.

    I know people in Law who had offers of AAB and got in with BBC.

    And yes, I'm back. After being struck by a Word 97 virus (running Word 2003) :rolleyes:

    Not for medicine. I didn't get in because I missed my offer by one grade. I was 3 marks off. Well I suppose medicine is over subscribed

    I think this answers the original question - not very lenient!
