    I'm hoping to apply for law at Kent. It says on their site a typical offer of AAA/AAB.

    I've spoken to a few friends at school who say that I could get an offer if I'm predicted ABB and I was wondering what y'all think about the situation? Do Kent purely take into account your predictions or do they look at other factors as well before making an offer?

    They might still make an offer. If you are at an underperforming school you may get the AAB contextual offer.

    Grammar school so it's definitely not an underperforming school. I really do regret taking economics now - huge problem with my predicted grades. I could potentially get an A* prediction in law though - would that help at all or not really?

    Always best to get the exact grades,, But they could decide to go by UCAS points if not enough people made the exact grades. Even if your predicted grades were ABB they might be impressed enough by your application that they make you an offer anyway, but you would still need to meet it.

    In terms of uni preference on subjects, then law does not give you any advantages for studying law and some unis tend to prefer traditional facilitating subjects.
