    So I have already gained AAB and I have applied to study Econ at Manchester. I am taking both Maths and Physics on this gap year predicted A* and A respectively. Manchester have however sent me an offer of AA in both physics and maths. I was sure that this uni would have been an unconditional.

    Is it fair that I've already achieved the grades for the university for them only to add more conditions to it?

    So you re resitting maths and physics? It can be something that unis do if someone's resitting but no harm in calling them for clarification

    I'm not resitting Maths and Physics, I'm just taking Maths and Physics in one year. I already have the AAB, the Maths and Physics are two separate subjects.

    What are subjects are the grades you already have? If they aren't as relevant to econ then they might not consider them as part of your offer and if it's the bsc then one A has to be in maths according to their website.

    I went for the BA with Social Studies. The subjects were Law, Psychology and Statistics. I purposely avoided the BSc as there is the compulsory requirement of Maths. I would have thought Law and Statistics would have been useful...

    Phone them up and tell them how you feel in a polite manor of course. They are usually really helpful. I think it is a unfair offer to be honest. On the other hand they can say hey you are predicted those grades :/

    They seemed to have made a mistake and changed the requirement to one A grade (no specific subject). Everything is sorted now.

    Congratulations! Told you they are really understanding! Also see how much water you are in February because it is better to get that one 'A' than a B and C respectively.

    Thank you! Yeah, Maths will always be my priority. If Physics gets unbearably difficult then I'll just drop it and devout my time to just Maths.
