    Nice choices, are you limited to London/The South? If not I would maybe think about popping an 'ABB' option down...

    Have UCL changed their offers because they offered my ABB?

    Oh, That seems a bit extreme. I wouldn't have got into medicine if the grades had been that high last year.

    they were raised to stop certian UoL schools constantly being put down as insurance choices and to therefore make the job of admissions in estimating the number of places offered:number of places availaible estimates a little less unpredicable.

    Hi, quick question for a mate who like for myself is applying to do medicine. His predicted grades are AAA but the boy has no work experience at all and i keep telling that he will be seriously hindering his chance to study medicine. Am i worrying for no reason or should i keep on his case about getting w/e. Another thing he wanted to know is that if his predicted grades are AAA will his, if successful, provisional offer be AAB or will they require him to achieve his predicted grades.
    Thanks to anyone who replies!!!

    I was predicted AAA and the offers I got were AAB, and two ABB so depending on where he applies to he should get the standard offer for that university

    No, he will only have to satisfy the conditional offer.
    And yes work experience is imperative for such a competitive course as medicine.

    Thanks Dr Ed for the info on St George's It shall be good news for one of my friends.

    Our school is below the 245 according to that site (Even though the average point score in the newsletter was 300 ....) so she now has another ABB option!

    "Applicants who are predicted AABb to BBCb will be considered for interview Offers will be the same as the predicted A level grades "
    (taken from the stgeorges(london) website)

    Surely this means if my predicted Alevel grades were AAA, then StGeorges will give me a conditional offer of AAA, doesn't it ?

    No that is not the case. The offers they give are based on your interview performance. A friend of mine predicted AAB, got the offer ABB from Georges, equally, people predicted AAA were given BBB offers as they were that damn good in interview!

    why do they say "Offers will be the same as the predicted A level grades" then?

    They should sort out their literature!

    Hi. I know im diverting from the thread title a little bit, but my question does have quite alot of relevance. Basically, i want to know that when a university offers you a conditional offer of AAB to study medicine, what are the odds that both the A's have to be in science subjects, bearing in mind, im taking Biology, Chemistry and History at A Level. If people know of this or have past experience in this situation then please enlighten me Thanks!!

    It depends on the offer made. it might be AAB in any subject, it might be AAB with an A in Chem etc. It varies from person to person, from school to school...
