Say I missed my offer by one grade, how likely would it be that I'd still be accepted? I'm looking to study Management (business school)

It would vary every year based on number of applicants and how many people got the grades needed. If they still had places left then you might get in, but if they fill all the places with people who got or exceeded the requirements you won't get in.

I'm just seeing this for economics which wants A*AA and is one of UoN's best degrees (they're 4th for econ in completeuniguide) and yet in 2017, 80 people who missed their offer were still accepted - that's nearly a third of the total enrolment


surely for business it'd mean there's more leniency as it doesnt rank as well and isnt as competitive?

It entirely depends on how every other offer holder also does, but yes a one grade miss is often ok.

Should be fine lots of people get in with a miss of one Grade, however... your ABB is likely already a lowered off (saw on another thread) i know one person who squeezed in with BBB (sports affliation also!)but alot of people got alot higher....I would definitely aim for ABB to be safe.

Yeah Management is AAB but I got offered ABB - HOWEVER, I think that's only because my parents didn't go uni and that qualifies me for a contextual offer

Definitely won't get any lower than BBB but there is a slight chance I may get BBB, although ABB is definitely doable

Would really get ABB if i were you... because tbh your chances in clearing for a similar course with BBB will be exceedingly slim.

Management tends to be oversubscribed....rememeber there are 272 places.. they HAVE to take who gets their offer.

I would be super interested in that! do message me when you get it if you can remember!

However, even though management is lower ranked doesnt mean there isnt demand for it, theres tons of people who hate maths but want to do business..

And alot of people who miss economics offers get offered a place in something called industrial economics...

However since management (is at the bottom of the food chain) there wont be any other offer made if its full!

You would be looking at an insurance choice.

Yea, though honestly industrial economics is literally the same... except everything is taught in an applied business way, which gives me little insight into why its supposedly less valued... lol

Most likely as an economist you will be working in a business context surely? the mysteries of life...

You can see the UCAS tariff profile of accepted students on Unistats
https://m.unistats.ac.uk/subjects/en...N200/ReturnTo/

Note some applicants will have a 4th AS-level or EPQ (and other qualifications) counting towards their total.

ABB is 128 points, so at least 5% have below that.
