    Its impossible to say, universitys are supposed to look at you application in this order; personal statement, reference and THEN grades but if your grades are massivly bellow what you need at A-Level there is a chance you may not be acepted on that basis.

    Well if your predictions are up to scratch there shouldnt be anything to worry about, just concentrate on making sure you get them!

    If you haven't 'cashed in' your AS Level grades then you don't have to declare them on your UCAS form, meaning the uni will just see your predicted grades .

    If you have and so have to state them, you could always contact the universities to let them know the circumstances during your AS year. Although if your headof sixth form is doing it too then that may be enough?

    Anyways good luck with it all! Where are you thinking of applying?
