    Im in the process of applying for ATCO in the RAF and am currently finishing my A2 exams. I am sitting cbat next week and my predicted A levels are BBB. My only concern is that I think realistically I will achieve BBC and I was unsure whether my application would be stopped if it turns out that I don't meet my predicted grades (BBB) that I applied with. Also, are these grades realistically competitive enough for selection even if I do well in all other areas?

    Thanks for any advice

    You should have nothing to worry about. What matters are your actual grades and as long as they meet the minimum you will be eligible for selection. For an aptitude based branch such as ATC they'll be far more interested in you aptitude scores and general performance at interview and in the hangars.
