We recognise that student’s individual educational experience and context can have an impact on the grades they achieve and their opportunity to participate in extra-curricular activities.
By using contextual data, we can take this information into account to form a complete view of the student’s attainment and potential when we assess their application.
The admissions selector may make one of the following decisions;
- To make the applicant the standard offer where their predicted grades may have fallen marginally short of the threshold we usually use to make an offer
- To make the applicant either a standard or enhanced contextual offer
- To take this information into account and to confirm the offer holder’s place if their results have fallen marginally short of the conditions of their offer
