My first choice Uni is Leeds and the course is PPE. My offer is AAA. If I miss this by one grade do you think I will still get in? appreciate any feedback. thank you.

It's impossible to say definitely but it's fair to say that many people who miss a grade on their offer get their place just the same. The best thing you can do at the moment is to work hard to do your very best, and see what happens.

Yes - I would bet money on it even


Right now, (excluding the Oxbridge, Durham, Top London unis, St Andrews and Edinburgh) unis will accept 1-2 grades lower, provided they're your firm for most courses

Had so many people missing their grades and getting into various Russell groups

Hi Normellie

Adviser Rosy here from the National Careers Service, it’s really great that you’re thinking ahead already and this is a really great question!

The only people who can answer your question is Leeds University Admissions Team, however universities have been known to be somewhat more flexible in this particularly if you have other aspects to your application, such as experience, a good reference or a strong personal statement.

If you have any other questions my colleague Tom is holding a live discussion on TSR, Facebook and Twitter or you could contact the National Careers Service from 8am to 10pm every day.

If you are concerned about exam results the Exam Results Helpline, delivered by the National Careers Service, will be available from A level results day on 16th August on 0800 100 900 from 8am to 10pm, 7 days a week. Calls are free from landlines and most mobile numbers.

Information, advice and guidance will be available on a wide range of qualifications including A-levels, GCSEs, BTECs, Apprenticeships and other vocational options. Other support will be available on topics such as vocational learning routes, university, gap year, moving away from home, re-sits and student finance.

Hope this helps!

Rosy
