say your offer is AAB and you get A*AC would you still be accepted. would the grade that dropped be compensated by the grade that is higher than the offer.

Possibly but not necessarily, and it certainly wouldn't be an automatic acceptance. It depends on how many places they have spare and what the other misses have got.

The posts below mention UCAS tariffs but unless your offer specifically says this, (and an AAB offer typically wouldn't) you can generally assume the university won't just be considering tariff points. They will have their own way of handling this, they might view ABB more favourably than A*AC for workload-balancing reasons, or view the latter more favourably than the former because the A* is in an important subject, etc. It might be quite specific.

If you offer us based on UCAS tariff or explicitly states that A*AC is accepted in place of AAB there's no problem, however if not then A*AC would be considered to miss your offer. However, your uni may still choose to accept you on results day, but it very much depends on how many other offer holders have met grades (unis sometime over-offer)and whether they would prefer to give your place to someone from clearing or someone they previously rejected who achieved AAB or higher.

Hi Porridge9280

I would depend on the university and the course. Some courses have requirements that certain grades must be met, and so even though you achieved a higher grade in one subject, it may not compensate for the lower grade. Other course can be more flexible, and would be able to accept you if you still achieve the total number of UCAS points required. Cases like that are all assessed on an individual basis with different factors being taken into consideration. Your university will contact you on results day either way. The best thing you can do is do the best you can in your exams.

I hope this helps, best of luck

It depends if the university prefers specific grades or number of UCAS points when making offers. Both A*AC and AAB are worth 136 UCAS points. If they don't accept A*AC, you may have to resit the A-level you have a C in to try and get a B. Alternatively, you could apply for a foundation year which generally has lower entry requirements. Hope this helps!

No-one knows - not even the Unis.
Like everyone else stressing about this, you will just have to wait for Results Day to find out.
