    I'd appreciate any answers, I'm a newbie to this

    1) I have no idea what my predictions are, but today had a moment of belief and I believe I can get ABB or even AAB this year but I reckon my predictions are BBB - can I ask what predictions I got? If so, who would I ask - advisor or UCAS?

    2) Stirling is my top choice, if I got rejected (oh lord no) could I e-mail them and try and negotiate an offer? I already have a large portfolio of work this year alone for English which I would happily send to them.

    3) I am doing Highers under different circumstances (4 hours or less of actual tutoring a week), will they take this into account? I understand it means more work on my part, but I hope there is some thought to it.

    1) You should have spoken to your tutor about what your predicted grades are before sending them off. He/She should tell you what they put.

    2) Its highy unlikely they will look at you again if you asked, but i suppose you wont lose anything by trying. Id recommend waiting untill UCAS Extra opens and if your course is in there maybe ask to be reconsidered.

    3) If you mentioned it in your app/personal statement then yes they propably would have

    1) You really should have known what your predicted grades are before applying. If you want to know now, ask your teachers.

    2) You could try, but don't put your hopes on it.

    3) Depends on if it was explained in your reference - if so, it may well be taken into account.

    When it came to my application, I had paid it and it sat in the college for 1 month before anything happened. At the start of the year, my English teacher asked what I'd like from English, I said a B but since then my work has genuinely improved and I reckon an A is in reach. I have no idea what I'd be predicted for in Politics or Psychology... If I am not satisfied after I inevitably ask - can I get the predictions changed? Or is it too late?

    Also, in terms of the hours of teaching, I didn't really want it to come across as me putting the college down (it IS a dire education establishment) so didn't think to mention it. However, people have gotten A's here before so it evidently can be done I just hope my predictions aren't crap.

    You could always get your referee to rewrite your reference and put in the new predicted grades and email them to the uni
