    Hiya,

    just trying to decide on my university choices for geology, and I'm unsure whether I should put Leeds down as it is a bit of a risky option.

    I'm predicted ABB however the entry requirements are AAB, therefore I don't even know if i would be considered for an offer?

    The course looks really good and in general I've heard good things about Leeds, but just don't want to get my hopes up or waste an option if there is no chance!

    I have a good academic 'track record' (A* and As and GCSE and AAB at AS level, but I dropped one of the As) and my personal statement is okay?

    So what I'm asking is.... does anyone have any experience of being given an offer to Leeds with lower predicted grades than the entry requirements? And do you think it would be worth me applying?

    Thank you!

    If you think there's a chance you can get AAB then apply, I was only predicted ABB and got onto a course needing AAB at Leeds

    If it helps, Leeds are notorious for lowering their grades for many subjects and my friend got on an AAB course with BBB

    1.This makes me optimistic. Thank you.
    2. Holy ****, two grades!
    3. Did they do any sports or anything? Like, my maths teacher got a two grade offer to Loughborough because she did swimming. Could a similar thing have happened there?

    yes apply. worse case scenario is that you get rejected and have 4 other choices to choose from. best case is that you get an offer - either way you don't lose
