I'm eligible for a contextual offer at King's based on my postcode, well it means that I will be considered for a contextual offer, so what does that mean exactly? Does anyone know what they base it off?

A contextual offer is an offer given to candidates that may experience barriers in their education journey. If its because of your postcode, it'l be because of one of these reasons:

You live in an area which has a higher classification.
You live in an area which has a higher level of deprivation.
You live in an area where the proportion of young people progressing to higher education is low.


Because of this, you will usually get a conditional offer of 1 or 2 A-Level grades below what is normally asked. So for example, if the course you want asks for AAA as a typical offer, you might be given an offer of AAB or ABB depending on what criteria you meet from whatever category your contexual offer is made from.

I go to Kings Hope this helps!
