    So I used the offer calculator to see how likely I am to get an offer from the unis that I've chosen and I am applying to Bristol for sociology. It says I have 57% chance of getting an offer, should I reconsider applying? I really want to go to this uni

    Toss a coin... heads apply, tails don't.

    Similar odds...

    Definitely go for it I applied for a uni that I was given only a 20% chance of getting an offer from, using the calculator and they were first back with an offer!!

    Note the Calculator is still in "beta". It's by no means complete and can sometimes be unreliable

    You may be right about it being unreliable, it told me that I had more chance at getting an offer from Bath than Bristol so it can't be that accurate

    Why ? They both have AAB requirements, but Bristol might well be slightly "fussier" or competitive.

    Yeah exactly the requirements are the same but for bath it says I have an 84%chance of getting an offer so it doesn't make much sense and I've always thought bath's entry standards are quite high.

    Entirely depends on the course.
