    I recently started a degree in the middle east and am planning to transfer to a uni in UK.

    I sent all the universities (that I am considering) an email asking them questions about transferring. All of them replied saying that they need my transcripts and marks from my semester. Now here is the problem. My exams will start in January and I don't think ill receive my results my the first week of February. The UCAS deadline is 15 Jan, what should I do? Should I ask my professors to predict a grade for me like they do in sixth form? I don't want to talk to them about transferring yet even though I have a good rapport with almost all of them.

    PS - i sent them my midterm marks and i do have a GPA of 3.6 out of 4.

    In this case, the deadline is unlikely to matter so much ... but check again with the unis, explain that you can't get them until February and see what they propose.

    Thanks!

    Recently, when i was going through some previous threads about transferring and all, some people were suggesting that the applicant should suggest the unis a particular grade they are willing to achieve, should I do the same?

    You can apply before the deadline and then update them with qualifications later.

    But it isn't a deadline as in "you cannot under any circumstances apply later". You can ask them if they will consider you later and explain the reasons. The deadline is less important for transfers into the 2nd year.
