    The course I am applying for requires BBB. At AS I got ABC, but my carrears teacher said it wouldn't be a problem as long as I got predicted a B in the subject I got a C in. But what would happen if I got Predicted ABB, but didn't pull my C up?

    Would I still have a chance at my course?

    Thanks.

    The uni will make you a conditional offer. This will say you need to get BBB to get in. If you don't get BBB or higher you have missed your offer - even if you get ABC - and the uni does not have to accept you. They can take some people who miss their offers, but they make more offers than they have places so they can't take everyone.

    OK, thanks for the help. If was applying for politics, but if I take it combined with another subject, will the chances be higher of me getting accepted with a lower conditional offer? Thanks.

    Predicted grades are only used buy the university to decide whether to give you an offer or not (along with your personal statement, AS grades and your interview [if you get one, but some don't have interviews at all]).

    If they give you an offer (grades/points etc) and you don't meet the conditions they won't accept you. BUT they may give you another offer depending on what other people applying for your course get.

    In these times; if you dont's meet your offer; there is a very limited chance of getting into that Uni, as there will be a lot of other people who do meet the grades. Just work hard and keep at it, and hopefully turn that C into a B.

    I would suggest lots of work on that subject to bring that C up to a B

    But it is in applied I.T and I bed near enough full marks this year to pull it upto a B. Is it easier to get into a course if you don't meet the grades if you take it with another subject?

    That's the question
