I have an offer with Aston (it's my firm) of 340 points (AAB) for Business Management. I think I can get As in two of my A levels, but I know I mucked up my latest one. Realistically, I think I'll get AAC.

I know that's definitely not meeting my offer, but loads of people seem to have offers for 320 points which is ABB or AAC. If I did end up etting AAC, do you reckon they'd let me in?

I tried searching around but I couldn't find what I was looking for in any other of the threads and I know the Business courses are really competitive but they're also on extra so does that mean they have places?!

please help!
:confused:

I'd imagine that if the places are on extra then you should be ok. If you do miss your offer then give them a ring and see if they'll take you anyway.

I would imagine AAC would get u in, it is when u start to drop to ABC or something that u may struggle to get into a AAB course

Does the fact that the course you've applied to is in extra mean that you are more likely to get in if u miss a grade??.. I have an offer for biz mgt. of ABB but I might just miss out on the A!

Nope! A uni will pretty much always accept you if you're a grade down, they'd much rather do that than leave it to chance with clearing. That rule obviously doesn't go for oxford etc. Also another tip, check the ucas website from VERY early on exam results day cause most people in my year found out on there if they got into their uni or not BEFORE gettin their exam results. Feel free to send me a private message if you want!

i really hope they are lenient, since i need ABB for Psychology and i really dont think ive managed it..maybe a BBB or even BBC but the annoying thing is last year for psychology the entry requirements were BBB so if i got a BBC last yr i would have had more a chance! I dont know how lenient they would be if i got a BBC??.. its a popular course too!

Best thing is to ring and ask. They may also be on clearing which means there's more of a chance.

The offer requirements for that course are 320-340 according to their website. I've got it down as my firm choice for 320, so if you miss the 340 and end up with 320 I'd say you should probably get in. I'm worried that I'll miss and get 300

I believe after today it's quite safe to answer the topic title now:


They aren't
