Try this:
Select student, CASE 
            WHEN preference = 20 or preference = 21 or preference = 22 
               THEN 'y' 
               ELSE 'n' 
       END as only_20_21_22 from pref

select p.student,
       case regexp_count(listagg(p.preference, ',') within group(order by p.student), '^20|^21|^22')
         when 1 then
          'y'
         else
          'n'
       end only_20_21_22
  from pref p
 group by p.student
 order by p.student;

Assuming the sample data provided is not a complete sample and the following data is possible:
student, preference
11,20
11,21
11,22
11,23

The above query will also fail.

Building on it try this:
select p.student,
	case when ltrim(regexp_replace(listagg(p.preference, ',') within group(order by p.student),'2[012]'),',') is null then 'y' else 'n' end 
  from pref p
 group by p.student
 order by p.student;
