    Hi guys, I want to apply for St Andrews to study History with A*AB predicteds. My A* is in history so i'm hoping that would help. Would I get an offer for an AAA history course then?

    Any advice appreciated.

    You need to ask them directly if they accept equivalent grades or if an A is the minimum

    It's certainly not impossible. I applied for a course at St A that expected a minimum of 38 IB points, was accepted with an offer of 36 points, and was given an unconditional despite only achieving 35.

    If you really want to come to St Andrews you should apply anyway, send them a HELL of a personal statement, and see what happens. If they see you have passion for the university and the course, there's a good chance you'll get an offer! Good luck.
