    Someone on here claims they got an offer of BBC. My friend got an offer for BBB, with ABC predicted grades, but the personal statement and reference probably helped.

    I got an offer of BBC from Nottingham. Although you might want to be cautious. I think that they’re only giving the BBC offers to those of us who are studying F.Maths. You’ll get a BBB or even an ABB offer from them if you’re not studying F.Maths.

    Go for it, even if you’re predicted those grades, theres absolutely no reason why you wouldn’t receive an offer. I’ve applied to Warwick (AAA) even though I’ve been predicted AAB. I’m guessing that Nottingham will be one of your higher choices? You don’t want to be thinking “what if I applied..”

    You could get BCC and they'd still probably take you. Seriously, that have a severe lack of applicants and are pretty desperate in trying to fill places. You'll be absolutely fine.
