I achieved AAB in Maths Psychology English and A* EPQ and I am taking a gap year and reapplying (didn't realise I was eligible to virtually every uni and exceeded my math predictions) for Economics.

Im thinking of applying to: (contextual offers)
Durham (ABB)
Bristol (AAB)
Kings College London (AAB)
Manchester (AAB)
Sheffield (ABB)

and meet all their contextual requirements, so I'm asking is would I be considered having already done my A-Levels or is a contextual offer only for predicted? Thank You

Contextual offer would still apply for achieved grades.

Each Uni may have its own contextual criteria, so if you haven’t checked already, look at all of their contextual offer info pages.

Usually Unis will consider someone on a gap year dor contextual offers - Bristol certianly does - but as above, just check with each Uni first so that you are certain.

thank you, and yes I have checked with each uni I will be applying to. Also, would it be unrealistic to only apply to unis that I meet the contextual offers only?

No, not at all. The above selection is sensible for someone with achieved grades.

thank you so much. I understand economics and the unis I'm applying to are competitive so I was wondering. Hopefully I get into Durham as my 1st choice.
