Well, AAA meets the contextual requirements (assuming one of those As is in Maths or Further Maths), so you certainly might receive an offer.

However, for Computer Science King's receive have more applicants who meet the requirements that they can make offers to, so there's no guarantee of an offer. They will also looks at your personal statement, academic reference, GCSEs, A level subjects, etc. when making a decision.
Hi, I got an offer from Kings that requires me to get AAA (contextual offer) a few days ago so yes they can give you an offer. But of course that depends on your personal statement and the rest of your application.

No you don't have to do anything. it gets flagged up itself on their system if you are eligible

Thank you very much! Did you know before you applied whether King's considered you as a contextual candidate? UCL tells you exactly on heir website tool yes or no but King's and QMUL say you MIGHT be which is useless.

If your predicted grades are better than their normal offer, is there any point in universities making you a contextual offer or will they always give you the contextual offer if you are eligible for it no matter how low their normal asking offers are?

I think if they say might be that means yes but I’m not entirely sure

Generally speaking, your predicted grades influence whether you receive an offer or not, but not what that offer is. The offer will almost certainly be the standard offer or the contextual offer, as appropriate.

I mean, if e.g. your predicted are AAA and standard offer is BBB and contextual BBC and you are eligible for a contextual offer, would you get a contextual in this case or the standard since your predicted are much better?

I realise what you meant, and thought my post answered it clearly. I'll try again. :smile:

Whether or not you receive an contextual offer or not is influenced by whether or not you meet the contextual requirements (detailed here) for King's. Your predicted grades are irrelevant.

So, in your scenario where a contextual candidate is predicted AAA, that candidate would receive the contextual offer of BBC.

Ok, thank you, I really appreciate it
