    I just had parents evening tonight. the problem is, I have already sent off my application to UCAS about 3 weeks ago. I thought I got A*A*A as predicted grades.
    but it was not... well I actually got 2A*s in maths and further maths but B in chemistry as predicted grade.
    few weeks ago, My chemistry just told me he is gonna give me an A to B as a predicted grade and I just believed him.
    but today, he just told me and my guardian that he gave me B as a predicted grade. the reason was that he realised that he can't put the range of grade there at that time. so, he just put B that's what he said.
    then, me and my guardian got angry a lot... we kept saying please fix the predicted grade to an A . but he said that i ve already achieved C in AS level although I will retake those unit2 and 3 in January (I got A in unit1 anyway) so he can't change it till the end of march becuase there is no eveidence that I can get A in chemistry . it's been only 1 year studying in UK for me(from yr12) which means,,, I'm international student.
    I seriously need to get an A cuz the highest grade required was A*A*A and lowest AAA.
    and I applied to maths with economics and actuarial science ..sort of mathematical couses.

    I had spoken to the head of sixth form and he said, it might me doesnt matter getting B in chemstry because they would just consider my maths predicted grades .

    I am so worried about that now.

    well I applied to Imperial college, LSE,UCL and CASS business school(city).

    anyone... help me!!!!!!!!

    What do you want us to do about it? We can't change your predictions or the universities that you've applied to.
    Ask your head of the sixth form for further advice but I don't think there is much you can do.
    Universities do sometimes consider applicants who are just below the typical grade requirements that they give, so don't freak out until you know for sure that they have all rejected you.
    Even then there are options with UCAS.
