    Hii,

    I have this question which has been bothering me for several time now, when you do a UCAS application, how can you send your A levels if you haven't done them yet? and how can they offer you a place if they need A levels?

    Since the deadline is 15th january, before that date you don't have results to a complete A levels...etc

    I really need explanations.

    You put the A-levels you haven't completed as "Pending" then they either offer you a place and tell you the grades you need to get in, or they reject you.

    You will usually submit the application after completing AS levels, so you can put those grades on the form. For the A levels that you will be sitting later on in the year, you put them as pending, and the universities can make you a conditional offer based on achieving certain results in these A levels. When the results come out in August, the universities will receive them and they will decide whether or not you have met the offer, and whether to accept you or release you.

    You apply the January after the AS results, not the January during the AS year.

    You'll just have to apply with the full A levels entered as pending and have predicted grades for those. You can ask your referee to mention anything that would clarify your situation to the universities.

    Thanks man, I didn't know that was possible.
    I will apply soon, to get the place I want.

    but it will be tough to predict the grades though.

    Once you have recieved your January results you can update the unis and tell them your new grades. They don't have to take this into consideration, but it would be worth telling them anyway.

    You don't predict your own grades - your tutor does. They should be experienced and be able to do this.
