    Unis get your results the weekend before you do and make decisions on those who haven't met their offers, such as getting A*AD rather than ABB. If they have space on the course you might get in, but if they are full up with those who met their offer or prefer other near-misses then you won't.

    One issue would be the subject of your D. If it's largely irrelevant to the course, eg Maths for an English degree, that would improve your chances. If it's Maths for a Physics degree, that's not good.

    hahaha sadly Dundee was one of the places which rejected me because I missed by a grade!

    Also the others sound as though they won't look too kindly on a D :/

    normally it's only if you miss by one grade (AND only by a bit) and have a strong application elsewhere

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

    No one here can give you a straight up yes or no. It depends on the university and it changes every year. Focus on getting the grades and if you don't then you'll know on results day.

    i.e. Offer: ABB Actual grades: A*BC

    That will help, but it won't make it automatic.
