    Don't get me wrong, I understand that it is a top uni and part of the Russell Group, but A*AA for Aerospace Engineering is a bit steep isn't it? Do they have extraordinary facilities in place or do they have well-renowned or noble laureate professors or something? I remember back in 2012/2013 there entry requirements were around the AAB mark.

    It's largely supply and demand. Particularly for Engineering many universities have relatively high entry requirements compared to the other courses they offer. eg Loughborough.

    Also raising entry requirements for popular courses helps drive up their ranking for that subject, and overall. Entry requirements are a key component of most ranking formulas.
