    Depends on the offer. Sometimes they ask you to get a minimum "A" in Subject 1 and "A" in Subject 2. If you get a "B" in Subject 1 and an "A*" in Subject 2 and Subject 3, despite getting better overall grades than asked for, you are still not meeting the offer, as they asked for a minimum of "A" Subject 1 (which you didn't get).

    So if it is points based, then yes, you have a higher equivalent than AAA, however if they ask for specific grades for certain topics, then it depends if you got those grades specifically.

    Automatically, no you don't. You needed 3 A's minimum. But they may well still take you because of your 2A*'s, so ask them.

    They might let you in anyway. Which uni are you asking about?

    They want consistent ability/achievement across 3 subjects. You havnt got that.
    If it was a points offer this wouldnt be a problem, but it is specifically a grade offer.

    Some Unis (and only for certain subjects) may tolerate this on Results Day (depending on how many places they are trying to fill with near-misses) but they/you wont know this until Results Day and its its fallout actually happens.

    So its a risky choice. Just make sure all you other choices - and your Insurance choice - are more realistic.
