    Hello,
    Currently in Year 12 and strongly considering Southampton as one of my options, how lenient do they tend to be with offers? On their website it says AAA, would AAB be enough to secure a place/offer?
    Thanks in advance!!

    I've literally just had an offer about 20 minutes ago for a AAA course with an AAB offer so it's very possible. my advice would be, in order to stand a chance of a reduced offer:

    - make sure that any exams you take this year are well executed (depending on if you're sitting any AS exams this year)

    - have a strong personal statement that is relevant to the course (I wrote mine about a particular psychology study and then attended the open day only to find that the study was a very big part of their course)

    - take all mock exams and tests seriously

    Best of luck!
