Applying to 'required A' university with B predicted Watch

    • Thread Starter


    I'm having a issue with universities at the moment. I'm interested in doing a BSc Mathematics degree. I am predicted a B in Maths, however some of the universities require an A stated on the website. I did get into contact with most of the the universities through phone and email, e.g. I contacted Leicester aand I got the response of

    "Thank you for your interest in studying BSc Mathematics at the University of Leicester. I can confirm that we can consider an application from you. Our typical offer to someone taking these qualifications would be Distinction, Distinction plus grade A at A-level maths. "

    They pretty much said the same thing over the phone. I'm wondering does this mean I could potentially get an offer with a B in maths, or does this mean they would give me an offer with a B but require an A in my results?

    Thank you!

    It means you may get an offer, but the offer would state you need to get an A.
