    Is there any chance on earth that i can get an offer by Univeristies with Entry requirements of BBB with predicted grades of BBC, i do Maths, economics and English
    i have a pretty good PS, i'd get very good recommendations and GCSE's are V good also.
    i know the answers probably no, but has anyone ever been offered a place with lower predicted grades than the Uni's minimum grades
    thanks in advance!

    Well One would have to check your PS and know your course details to inform you on your situation. Message me your PS and tell me what course you want to do, and I'll give you a better idea on your chances.

    worth a shot though, just make sure you choose a realistic insurance offer

    Yeah, there is a very reasonable chance of univeristies offering you BBB with BBC as you're predicited grades. It's not always the univerisites 'minimum' grades though, often it's the typical offer

    Also, please don't bump your thread after only a few minutes.

    Unfortunately I missed my offers as I got ABC so I'm reapplying (also I got cccd at AS). I had offers for Aerospace Engineering at Sheffield, Loughborough and Surrey; Mechanical Engineering at Warwick and Sussex.

    There good! So you'd only have to bring the two Cs up to Bs. I don't know whether your re-sitting or anything but it might be an idea to declare the B on your UCAS form (in AS's) and put the other too as pending if you re-sit. But I don't think you'll have too much of a problem with BBC predicted I'm sure you'd get a BBB offer from somewhere.

    Your welcome!

    Yeah I was going to say don't be afraid to aim a little higher for your choices, just make sure you have one or two insurance choices of BBC or BCC. (Would take the pressure off next year as well.)

    Good luck!
