    Madam, I sincerely apologise.

    I'm sure it's actually a great university, but I'm sure you'll concede in a purely prestigious sense, not as good as Cambridge.

    But yeah, I feel like a **** now.

    Sorry
    Haha, no worries.
    I only went to the sixth form there anyway.

    Yesterday I was feeling really good about my UCAS application - had sorted my ps, got a glowing school reference and almost narrowed my uni choices for engineering (Cambridge, Edinburgh, Bath, Sheffield and Southampton) - then I got my predicted grades.
    I knew my parents wouldn't be happy but the way they reacted you'd i have thought I had wrecked my chances of Cambridge completely.
    I have 5 A grade AS s(Physics, DT, Chemistry, Maths and FM) and my lowest score was FM (I got 91%). I have dropped Chem and am taking
    M3 as an additional maths module.
    My parents thought I should have been predicted A* in FM as I got over 90% UMS but my sister said as no one got A* in FM this year they wouldn't have predicited A*. (She is an Oxbridge freaher).They think I should ask to be predicted an A*.
    Will I still get a Cambridge interview - I have 11 A* GCSE and A in FSMQ

    Cambridge are more interested in UMS scores than predicted grades - a Cambridge tutor told me. Their mathematical tests have shown that to be the case.

    He hasn't replied for about 2 pages+ridiculous post=troll.
    I don't see why he is a troll. He said:

    I'm not a troll. I know my predictions are really good but I'm being pressurised by my parents into asking the school to give me an A* prediction. I don't want to do that.

    Him saying he isn't doesn't mean he isn't. I just find his story very hard to believe. I could understand if it was maybe 2 A*s and 2As but one SINGLE A?

    Oh I'm so glad your parents aren't my parents! You poor thing, Don't feel bad still apply. for god's sake, I'm applying to Oxford my grades aren't as Brilliant or in highly academic subjects like yours are. I got 1* not 4!!! and my parents are supporting me.
    Its ridiculous. 1* and 2 A's is brilliant, so your parents should wake up.

    He says:

    "I don't want to do that. "

    "I know my predictions are really good but I'm being pressurised by my parents "

    He doesn't care about it.

    Can we just make a sticky with "Have you been predicted A*AA? If yes you will almost 100% get an interview at Cambridge"

    FYI They do not really care how many predictions of A*'s as long as you have one...
