So, I'm due to send off my UCAS on thursday as I'll get my last reference then. I'm in year 14 doing A2 Mathematics only, alongside resits, My studies and predicted grades are as follows;
Mathematics - A
English Language - A
Biology - D
Last year in Biology I slacked, alot. I prioritised my other studies and I realise this dialema is entirely my own fault, please don't point that out to me.
Overall I got an E, 2% Off of a D. I hate myself for this.
My modular results are;
Unit 1 - 78%
Unit 2 - 48%
Unit 3 & 4 are less than 40%, U grade.
My offers are asking for ABB/ABB/BBB/BBC/BBC and I am really set on going to either of the ABB Unis as my girlfriend (of over two years) intends to go there we both love the areas (Swansea and Reading)
My teachers are refusing to predict me over a D as I showed little enthusiasm or effort last year, leading to bad grades. I've completely changed my priorities and I am intending to get a B grade overall, as I think this is a realistic representation of what I'm capable of.
On Thursday I'm being asked to sit an A2 Unit 4 exam (Which I will be resitting in Jan) to help the head of Biology decide upon whether she will predict me a D or a C. Even if I was to get a C or above in the test, it's still not definate she'd be able to predict me a C.
Sorry for rambling. I'm basically asking, with predictions of AAD (Worst case scenario) would I even be considered for places which would require me to get AAC? Would the C grade prediction drastically change my application as my predicted grades would reach the 320 point requirement for the course at the unis I'd like to go to?
Also - any tips on persuading my teaching that I'm really dedicated to aim for a B would 'B' appreciated. I hope after reading this no one will let themselves get into my position because it SUCKS!
Predicted grade help! Watch

I think you need to meet the minimum requirements to be considered. But why don't you give the universities a call and ask?

It depends on what subject you're applying for and competition etc but if you were predicted AAC i think its likely you'd get at least one AAB offer, i know lots of people who've been offered grades higher than predicted

There are only 2 Unit 4 A level past papers for the new spec. Memorise the answers
