    For example, could I get a BBB offer for ancient history and archaeology, with a predicted BBB? And then if I got BBC at the end of A2?

    hey I just got into uni and I applied for International relations which required me to achieve BBB but ended up getting ABD on results day, I would say they are pretty lenient; you'll be fine

    I actually got in through clearing and they required BCC on the day however they said a grade below was acceptable so I got quite lucky.
    Uhmm my GCSE's weren't too bad, 4A's, 4B's and 4C's.

    However, I think the ultimate to why I was accepted was due to the low number of students on the course. I think there was a greater number of students in the Banking and Finance course because the Accounting and Finance course wasn't available for students for the 2015/2016 entry.

    Nevertheless, I wouldn't set my standards low. Just make sure you do the very best that you can. Start past papers from now lol

    My offer for economics was ABB and I got in with a BBB without clearing or anything. So they are definitely lenient.

    My requirements for Geology were BBB and I ended up getting BCD and still got in on results day. I'd say i was lucky but this shows they can be very lenient.
