Hi so I was wondering whether unis like LSE, UCL, Warwick actually mean their entry requirements. Like if the requirements stated are AAA, so does this mean that as long as your predicted grades are AAA, you have a realistic chance of getting in? Or do you actually need to exceed them by a lot, like 2-3 A*s to get given an offer?

Thank you so much

Depends, if the course is a competitive course, priority will be given to those who achieve above-the-required conditions for entry. However, this doesn't mean they will disregard other applications as far as your grades are AAA or equivalent!

Good Luck

I’d say of course a higher grade will be advantageous, but if your other sections of your application are strong, you have a good chance as well.

Normally in most universities have a good chance if your predicted grades match or are just below. For very competitive courses at the absolute top universities this might not be the case. You might be applying for a heavily oversubscribed course. Nobody is going to be able to give you a definite answer but if you meet the grades you have a chance of getting in. If a university wanted higher it would ask.

I see, thank you everyone for the replies.

I’m planning on applying for LSE, UCL, Warwick for politics and international relations. Hoping that my predicted grades (which are slightly above the entry requirements) will secure me offers!
