I was wondering whether contextual offers can be based upon where you got your GCSEs from or if it is only where you are studying your Alevels at. My old school where I got my GCSEs from falls into the list of schools available for contextual offers but my new school where im doing my Alevels doesn't. I am thinking of applying bath bristol southampton birmingham and maybe imperial. any advice would be appreciated. thanks

Where you do your GCSES, a levels, where you live, wether your parents went to uni is all taken into account
My parents went to uni & the school I went to & college are both way above average and I still some how got a contextual so, l literally depends on the uni bc I got it from one but not another

Most uni’s will consider attendance at lower performing gcse or AL schools/colleges.

They will have info on their websites, you can always check before you apply, google “contextual+Uni name”.

If you get an offer and it isn’t reduced, you can always ask them to check whether they considered both schools. Sometimes the system will only flag the most recent so there’s no harm in them manually checking.

personally I dont think they should be a thing, schools whether good or bad really do not have an outcome on results. I only go to school for resources really. But hey if i can get a reduced offer then I wouldnt mind it lol

Fair enough I would do the same in your shoes. It depends on a lot of things. I go to a grammar school and people still got contextual offers in my year.
