I got an offer from a uni which typically offers for students with ABB-BBB and I applied through clearing with CCE yet they sent an email offering me a place?

Is this too good to be true?

Have you put the offer into Track and have they accepted? Which course is it?

Fingers crossed for you

I put it into track and it says "waiting for decision", which is why i'm sceptical, but they did say explicitly in the email that they're offering me the course.

If you had written confirmation and you submitted it before their deadline then it's fine

A level results at a 12 year low and less 18 year olds this year. While universities aren't neccesairily struggling to fill places (the demand is always there), they perhaps are willing to be a bit less pickier than usual so they can keep raking in the dough.

Not to discredit your achivements though, congratulations!

Keele will accept people with DDD from clearing for Natural Sciences even though their standard offer is BBB so anything is going atm it seems.
It's nothing new, they've always taken people in with far less than what the prospectus says.

Many unis artificially inflate their entry standards to make them seem better than what they are.

Regardless, congrats!
