    They may have given him a contextual offer or decided as he could have been a near miss that they still wanted him.

    For example (its different with each university) they might give someone a lower offer if they went to a school in a deprived area, or had low a level results or a low amount of students ending up in university. Bristol explains it here http://www.bristol.ac.uk/study/undergraduate/apply/
