My offer for BSc Economics at Exeter was reduced to BBB rather than the typical offer 'A*AA-AAA'. Why is this? I'm not sure I'm massively disadvantaged. Is it to do 4 A Levels? Thanks in advance

Um my GCSEs were four 9s, two 8s and four 7s. I don't think good GCSes would give me a lower offer, if anything its reason not to xd

Don't they say that if you make them firm choice they will reduce your offer? Could it be that?

Are you the first in your immediate family (parents, siblings etc) to go to uni? Do you attend a college with poor exam results or a secondary school with poor results? Do you live in an area where most people don’t go to higher education? Have you done a lot of extra curriculum/ work experience that you mentioned in your personal statement? Are you in care or have you been in care? Are you a refugee or estranged from your family?
If the answer is no to all of those then you or your referee have obviously said something that makes the university want you! Check the offer carefully though as there may be a catch that means you have to firm the place to keep the reduced offer, and/or you have to accept the place by a certain time to keep the offer.
Well done of your offer!

While I did get a reduced offer if I choose as my firm (AAB from A*AA if I get an A in EPQ as well) for econ and politics, that is certainly not as low as yours. Well done on the offer!

Perhaps just email them and have a run through the terms of your offer.
