    How do you give universities that you have applied for predicted grades if you self teach your A levels bar one. I have spoken to them and they said to just make it clear on the application that I am self teaching, but I don't want them to dismiss me because they don't have much indication of my ability cause I can't imagine that my gcse's show that much if I am 22years old. I have been able to give them two predicted grades out of four A levels that I am doing.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Write in your PS something like "Due to the fact I am self teaching the four courses, I do not have predicted grades. However, I would hope to acheive xxxx grades." or something a bit shorter if your PS is too long.

    It might be able to go in your reference, but obviously if it's from an employer or non-teacher it can't really I don't think.

    I've already sent my application so I can't add it to my ps. I did put in it which subjects that I was self teaching, but managed to get a maths tutor to give me a predicted grade and the subject that I was attending classes.

    How did you send your application off if you don't have predicted grades? I had the same problem last year and just had to basically put down the grade I was targeting. Not really a huge issue because the offer will be conditional on you getting the grades anyway, it's your own fault if you're unrealistic in your own predictions.
