1) Have you checked each Uni for their contextual offer criteria - not all Uni are the same.
2) What do you mean - "getting an aab is a disadvantage for me"?

yes i have all these unis i am eligible, sorry about my wording, so kcl is a very competitive uni with low acceptance rate, will they favour someone with a higher grade than me despite me having contextual
If your entitled to a contextual offer that is what the university looks at. The idea of a contextual offer is not to disadvantage students because of their background and education so no you wont be disadvantaged . That isnt the same as saying you will definitely get an offer.

That is entirely your choice dependent on how confident you are of getting the grades. However Biochem isnt overly competitive and some of these universities are likely to accept a dropped grade so I think you should be fine. As a last resort you will have clearing if your grades fall.

Hi @frostedfaries

I think you should be able to get an offer with at least some of the universities you are considering, if you are worried maybe try to choose a selection of universities with a range of grade requirements. I currently study biochemistry at Lancaster and love it, so let me know if you have any questions about the course/life here! :smile:
