I have, although I haven't heard from any of them ones yet. I would recommend it if you think you have a good personal statement and you think you can prove you have a real interest in the subject. Most uni's will look at your personal statement and your reference as well as your predicted grades. I also got an offer from Kingston which was for 200 points (they asked for 240 points in their prospectus) so I would assume they were either desperate for people to do the course or they really wanted me to do their course because they saw I had a real interest.

I'm predicted AAB (with the B being in Maths) and applying for a course where the requirement is ABB (with the A being in Maths).

I got offers when applying for a course that required 280 points. My predicted grades were BE. Started a new A-level, so don't know the predicted grade.

I applied for a ABB-AAB course. Got accepted with an ABB offer.
I'm predicted BB and a B/C I think (Started a new A level...was never told my predicted grade after trying to get one for weeks.)

Some uni's lower entry requirements if you are very good or if they desperately want students.

One of my friends got 3 or 4 A grades at AS level. A university gave him an conditional offer of EE! They should give him an unconditional offer instead if I was the admissions tutor.
