    I have a problem,
    I've applied at the University of Surrey for 2017 and I've been offered a conditional offer for the grades ABB
    The thing is, at this moment in time, my final grades are going to look like ACC...
    I was just wondering, would this be good enough to get a place?
    If it helps, the course I'm applying for isn't popular, also I'm not getting accommodation, as I live near the Uni, and Surrey is also my firm choice.
    I know no one can guarantee me a 100% accurate answer as we have to wait for results day, but if you had to put your money on it, what would you say?
    Thanks! Any answers would be greatly appreciated xx

    Hey Historia-Reiss,

    As you've mentioned, no one can really say for definite whether or not your grades will be acceptable to gain entry to the course you've applied for. It all depends on how many people reach their offer grades, how many choose to accept their places and how many places there actually are on the course.

    If it turns out that you don't achieve the grades you expected on results day, we will have a Clearing helpline you can ring for advice The number will be displayed on our website (www.surrey.ac.uk) from results day onwards.

    All the best,
    Ashley

    Like Ashley said- you really can't call it- the different departments/ courses vary in how giving/ harsh they are with results that don't meet conditions... For my course, music, they are quite giving; I know plenty of people who missed the conditions by a fair margin. The uni does take into consideration which a levels/ btecs you are doing; so, for example, if you were applying for music which required ABB and you got an A in music but a C in chemistry, i'd be surprised if they'd reject you on that. If you were to get a C in music when they asked for ABB, chances are you'll be rejected there because you got a C in the course you've applied for... (but there are plenty of people on my course who did get a C in A-Level music and still made it!)

    Best of luck though, it's natural to think you've done worse that you actually did- i certainly did this time last year xD
