    Based on the evidence, it seems that the main aspect that influences universitiy decisions are the predicted grades. I hate to say that you may have trouble getting into universities that want 300 points, but you're in at a good chance at getting an offer if the typical grade requirements are 180-240 points.
    It also rests highly on the universities in question that you have applied to. Which ones have you applied to, and what course have you applied for?

    Edit: Don't worry about it too much, I thought that no unversity would accept me either, and they have done!

    Good luck! Try not to think about it too much... At this stage the universities will probably be quite quick in getting back to you, so check your UCAS tracker regularly!

    If you get the grades to go to your first choice, you can't go through clearing.

    what subject did you apply for, that makes a lot of difference, also if you only get CCC will you really be up to doin a degree in that subject, but i think you will get in the unis u state in my opinion almost anyone gets into, maybe with the exception of liecester

    CCC are good grades! I think you will definitely be up to doing the degree and anyway A-levels are all different with some being harder than others so you can't always expect to be getting As.

    Well you should get an offer from Luton and they will probably be flexible even if you dont want it.
    I requested some info from Luton before I applied through UCAS, it wasnt one of my UCAS choices in the end but they still sent me correspondance telling me that if I missed my grades to contact them direct and even when I started my course I carried on receiving information from them for absolutely ages.
    I think Leicester is generally quite competitive, and Kent as I recall is very good for criminology it is one of the subjects for which it is rated excellent so I think that probably is one of the most competitive subjects at Kent.
    De Montford are generally quite accommodating they have a lot of clearing places, and I dont really know anything about the others though I think Essex is very good for some subjects.
