Suppose my predicted grades are an A*AA and the entry requirements for some of the universities (e.g. LSE, KCL etc) are AAA. Will those universities ever base me an over on my A*AA and what happens if I get an offer based on A*AA but cannot get that grade in the actual A level result?

Can someone please advise me on this!!! 😭

If you get an offer it will almost certainly be the standard one on their website.

You are required to meet your offer, not your predictions.

No, Whilst theoretically unis can do what they like, this doesnt happen, if anything there more likely to reduce the offer (although at top unis, this doesnt really happen).

Unis are required to treat all applicants equally & fairly, this would be effectively punishing success...

Unis want the best students possible, and the offers are normally standardised across a cohort.

the reality is admissions tutors are busy people who normally have very few spare hours as it is, they dont want to waste time mulling over this kind of thing, once theyve decided their making you an offer, they just copy & paste the same criteria every candidate with an offer gets...
