    Unistats suggests you have a low chance of getting in. the best thing to do is ring them up and make an informal enquiry so you can avoid being rejected on the spot. They will tell you at least hat much and then you wont waste a choice.

    Either UCAS tariff calculator is trolling us, or you've got a high chance of success (the usual qualifications about the personal statement, mitigating circumstances in exams, and coming from a poorer socioeconomic background, apply).

    Put your subjects and grades in 'ere: https://www.ucas.com/advisers/offer-rate-calculator/

    I inserted an ABB prediction for Exeter for English Lit, History and Maths respectively, and it came up with 88% chance of getting an offer (!) (Screenshot)

    And don't forget there's a difference between getting an Offer, and being accepted with those grades.

    Recently someone applying to Newcastle was asking if they'd be considered with ABB, as the UCAS calculator said they'd have a 90%+ chance of being given an offer. The Newcastle TSR rep contacted the law admission staff and were told categorically nothing below AAB prediction would be considered, let alone 90%+ of them being given an offer. I think there is a quirk of how they combine each A-Level together to form a chance of offer. Maybe they're combining the chance of each A-Level's offer worthiness, rather than the three together? Anyway, it does not work.

    Ah, fair enough. I don't think that we have enough info either way to reach a conclusion on whether it works or not.

    My personal hypothesis is that a lot of the below-offer grades predicted by supposed offerholders were contextualised to the extreme, with most people being predicted e.g. ABB not bothering to apply in the first place. For instance, if only 4 ballsy applicants applied to Exeter law with AAC, and three of them got offers for whatever reason, that could still be a 75% offer rate. Then again, is there a minimum number of data points UCAS needs to list an offer rate on its calculator? Don't know.

    Have you already completed your a-levels? or are you predicted ABB?

    I, personally, would still apply as most of these unis seriously overstate what they're willing to accept. So, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

    It's probably changed since I started at Exeter but for law I had to get AAA. I didn't know anyone who got lower than their offer and got in. Having said that I have heard there have been downturns in applications (to all unis) and that Exeter are accepting some lower grades. Why not apply there and then apply to some other unis with lower thresholds? Just be sure toemphasise any legal work experience/non academic achievements in your personal statements or any extenuating circumstances.

    They'll give you an offer (I think their standard offer is AAA), but you might not get in with those grades.

    If you went to a rubbish school, they might give you a lower offer. Somebody on Pathways to Law with me got a BBB offer from Exeter. Just apply and see what happens.

    I applied with ABB for LLB Law and they gave me an offer of BBB, I would go for it. You might get rejected but what’s the harm. I took a gamble.
