    Um, good grades aren't everything. My brother got 5 As at AS and was rejected. Acting like a B is terrible on here probably isn't helping others.
    For a subject as competitive as PPE (in relation to Cambridge), I would imagine 2 Bs would damage an application. I know grades aren't everything, but a line has to be drawn somewhere.

    I'm having flashbacks to the moment where I realised I actually really did care about Cambridge, despite thinking I wasn't that bothered. It was the day I was meant to send off my UCAS form and the first time I saw my predicted grades...which were AAA. That's obviously below the standard offer (despite me having 200/200 and 194/200 UMS at AS in Classical Civilisation and Latin, my two most relevant subjects), and my stomach just dropped because I thought Cambridge wouldn't even look at me without predicted grades matching/exceeding the standard offer. I ran to my tutor in a panic and she was very understanding and sent a strongly worded email to my Classics and Latin teacher (the same person), and thankfully they were both raised that day!! Apparently she thinks I am capable of A*s but 'doesn't trust the examiners'.

    That's a dodgy reason to underpredict someone!

    But there's no reason for the line to be drawn at 2 Bs and you don't know the reason behind the Bs.
    I have a B in Spanish as my teacher was away for 3 months before my speaking exam and there was a problem with the marking (everyone in my class got a C in the speaking, even native speakers and people who can't speak any Spanish). Does this mean someone with 4 As deserves an offer more?

    I was just saying it's inconsiderate to be insulting grades on a day when people are already probably stressed enough.

    I'm feeling less nervous after talking to my brother. He reminded me that a part of it is down to chance - sometimes you've tried your best and you were good enough but you got unlucky. If you don't get an offer tomorrow then it doesn't mean you're not smart or talented and its not helpful for you to take it personally. Good luck everyone ❤️
