    Quick question, say a university has typical entry requirements of "A*AA/AAA". If my predicted grades were three A*s, would I be more likely or less likely to get the higher offer of A*AA as opposed to if my predicted grades were three As?

    I think it depends what subjects you do, if you have all the required subjects for the course I think you get a lower offer, whereas say if you had 2 out of 3 desirable subjects for the course they will give u an offer but it would be higher......but if it's just grades then yes I think you would probably be required to get A*AA

    For many requirements quoted as "A*AA/AAA" the lower offer is for those with specific circumstances such as being from a low-performing school, underprivileged area etc. As stated above, others can depend on your A-level subjects - I have seen Psychology requirements which vary according to how many science A-levels are included.
