    My predicted grades are AAA and I've already found 3 Uni's with grades AAA/AAB/AAB.

    Now I'm looking for two back up Uni's with grades ABB and BBB.

    A Uni I like the look of has grade requirements of AAB - ABB.
    If I get a conditional offer from them does that mean I can achieve between AAB and ABB, or will they look at my application and choose a grade I must get.
    If they do the latter, I don't want to risk the chance of them saying I must get AAB because that grades too high to be my back up?

    I'm not entirely sure how offers work?

    It means that most applicants will need to achieve AAB but those who are eligible for a contextual* offer will get an offer of ABB.
    *who's eligible for a contectual offer varies from uni to uni, but is normally based on where you go to college, and the higher education participation rate where you live.

    Do people only ever know if they get a contextual offer once they've applied? Or is there a way to know beforehand?

    There should be criteria listed on the uni's website for their contextual offers. It will give a list of schools/colleges that are eligible for contextual offers.
