    my AS levels are:
    Maths:A
    Biology:A
    Chemistry:A
    Music:A
    my subject teachers are refusing to put any of my predictions up to an A* so i was wondering if there is much point using a valuable space applying to a natural sciences course .
    (my other applications range from requiring AAA-ABB)

    many thanks in advance

    You have nothing to lose if it is one choice. You still have 4 others to work with and some schools have a policy of not predicting A*.

    The problem is that universities requiring the higher grades are usually the most competitive and difficult to get offers from but unless you try you will never know. Good luck anyway

    UCL will consider AAA:

    Exeter can offer at AAB:

    There are options for Natural Sciences with your predicated grades if you shop around. Some of them don't appear to be too shabby.

    AAB for Exeter is the contextual offer and is only made if you meet contextual conditions ie the school you sit a levels is in the bottom 40%
