    I know that, well done. Clearly I was talking about it not being a normal occurrence of the required grades being lowered if you don't actually have any contextual factors, not that contextual offers with genuine contextual reasons aren't normal. Again, your comprehension and deduction skills need serious improvement if you can't understand posts on TSR.
    Then why did you ask "what reasons" idiot? Nice attempt at trying to save yourself. But you know what you meant.

    And do you think that the teachers in the OPs school might have some understanding of the school’s relative exam performance and position in league tables?

    WP schools are heavily targeted by universities. Teachers in those schools know that their students are likely to be eligible for contextual offers.

    I asked for what reasons as clearly I was asking for what reasons outside of having contextual factors they'd lower an offer. That was incredibly obvious from reading my posts, you need to learn comprehension.

    So you were asking what reasons other than contextual reasons would they give you a CONTEXTUAL offer? God you're stupid asf.

    There's no other reasons for giving contextual offers you moron.

    Applying to universities above your predicted grades is completely stupid, there will literally be hundreds (if not thousands depending on the university and the course) of other students who either meet or exceed the grade requirements who apply. What possible hope do you think you have of being chosen over one of those people? It's absolute zero, competition for university places has never been more fierce and universities have absolutely no reason to give a place to somebody who doesn't even meet their basic requirements when they have much better options on offer.
    are you dumb, unis give out missed grades. Nottingham accepted 36 BBB students for a course with typical offer of AAA, which btw less than 10 people achieved it for that course in that specific year. don't put people down luv when u know nothing.

    What was that course? It doesn't sound like a course worth doing if they lowered the requirements by that much.

    That degree at that university isn't worth wasting £27,750 plus living expenses on, each to their own.
