    What was your offer and what subjects did you do? What A level grades did you achieve? And what are you doing now?

    They give out AAA offers including A in maths. I am curious if anyone got in with any lower/ knows anyone who got in with lower.

    Thank you.

    although the offer is AAA you might get in with AAB as long as you have Southampton as your firm choice or/and attend their informal interview(don't stress out its a casual talk with a tutor)
    Also, if you achieve A*A*A you are likely to receive a merit scholarship worth £1k tho I think for the next academic year(2017/2018) they are offering other scholarships as well

    Okay thank you. Why must I have Southampton as my firm choice/attend thier informal interview to get in with lower grades than my offer?

    Also are you a student there, if so what degree are you doing and what a levels did you do to get in?

    I was offered AAA or A*AB, both requiring an A/A* in maths. In the end I got A*BBB and am starting a Bsc in Computer Science this year. In the interview (which is pretty chill), I was told that they generally are happy to accept you if you miss a grade, especially if it is your firm choice.

    Not yet as I haven't actually moved down there yet, and so haven't met anyone else on my course. If you would like, I could reply here in about a week when I should have met some people off of my course.

    Hi, I would really appreciate if you ask some people studying computer science at Southampton about their the grades they achieved at A level and the Subjects that they did. I'm worried because I am retaking so I really need to get in next year so I am curious about how nice they can be.

    You could PM if you like or just post on this thread, but please do.

    Hello. Thanks a lot for the response. I was wondering if you have found about any more peoples grades and the subjects in which they achieved the grades in. It would be really helpful. I am interested in the proportion of people who get accepted with lower grades than the entry requirements and people who did not get an A in maths/computing.

    I retook this year and I'm not feeling to confident. I have a feeling of ABB/AAB in Biology,Chem Maths and I have a B in AS english literature.

    Please reply. Thanks.
