    So I'm applying for Mathematics ( G100 ) at Uni, and I was hoping on going to Bristol but that requires A*A*A. And i'm only predicted A*BB, I come from a secondary school which has 52% 5+ A* - C GCSE results and from a family that's never been to sixth form or even uni.

    I've heard you can get lowered grades for stuff like this, but how would i do that?

    If you're school is on the list (http://www.bristol.ac.uk/media-libra...ols-2017-3.pdf)

    You can receive a contextual offer which is AAA, so with A*BB I doubt it even if you did get a contextual offer.

    To see where you could realistically apply, try WhatUni : https://www.whatuni.com/degree-cours...ct=mathematics
    Enter your predicted grades and you'll get a list of possible Unis.

    Bristol also has its Engineering Maths course. Requires AAA or A*AB, and with your predicted A*BB you are likely to get an offer.
