If the typical offer is ABB, but the university specifies that 128 ucas points is essential does that mean A* A C what I probably will get will meet the entry requirement.

It depends on the wording of your offer on Track.

If you have questions about leniency then you should speak to a university directly to find out whether they’re usually able to be flexible about who is accepted and if so what they take into account.

Just remember that Universities that specify their offers only in grades will not automatically accept 'points equivalent' - ie. BBB may be 120 UCAS points but it doesnt mean a 'grades' Uni will accept ABC (also 120 points) on Results Day. 'Points Unis' are always more flexible - that is why they make offers that way. 'Grades' Unis are more competitive and want specific grades, not 'sort of the same'.

I think I will email them and ask. I haven’t got an offer yet , just looking at the website to see I’m worried with the alevel fiasco at the moment.

They do not specify the ABB, the specify 128 ucas points and say Abb is the typical offer. I think they are a more flexible university- BCU

They are usually desperate for any old bums-on-seats.

I think it depends on the course I’m applying for a healthcare course which is oversubscribed for
