    Yeah Birmingham offered me AAA for Law when the average is AAB/ABB, which is not that bad but come on AAA is harsh by any bodies standards

    Last year nottingham offered me CCCC when the standard offer for the course is ABB. Very bizarre.

    I'm an IB student, grades are on a 1-7 scale and not in letter terms so he's not referring to an IB offer...

    Sometimes it happens. KCL offered me bbb initially but when I put them down as insurance they changed it to unconditional.

    I don't know- my ex-bfs sister had a place at Durham to natural Science and her offer was AAA, she ended up with AAB and they wouldn't have her (her insurance was chemistry also at Durham).

    Advanced extension awards - like special papers which the most able students take.
