Am I eligible for a contextual offer if I go to a grammar school?Watch
Neither of my parents went to university.
I live in quintile 2 but I go to a grammar school.
Will this mean I am no longer eligible?
So if you want to check if you are eligible, you can go on several university's contextual offer eligibility tester thing.
Here's one for UCL
This isn't a definite indication of whether you will be eligible, but it can be used as a kind of rough guide to whether you can get a contextual offer.
A few Unis will give Contextual offers based on your school's exam/progression to HE data - Bristol and Aberystwyth are two examples, and there may be others. Other Unis will use a combination of all of this.
You need to google the name of your intended University and 'Contextual Offer' to find the appropriate page on their websites. Some Universities are very vague about how they determine eligibility - Sussex as one example - unhelpful as it means you can't be certain of your eligibility for a lower offer before you apply.
Its all a bit of a muddle and it would be so much easier for everyone if there was a bit more consistency between Universities.
