Predicted Grade System = Meh
I'm predicted things based on my first month studying for AS? Like... what?
Sorry, I don't have anything to add to your original question

Yeah you can do that. Unis would also feel more comfortable handing an unconditional out to someone than making a conditional based on the same predicted grades as the other guy's achieved grades.

last year i got predicted AAB and lboro offered me AAB. i missed it by 3 marks but they wouldnt let me in so i took a gap year as i really wanted to go there. I applied again for exact same course, and didnt do any retakes, so i applied with the AAB that i got, and within 10 days they replied on UCAS with uncondional
best thing to do is apply to uni cos for all you know you may get the grades, and even if not, they may possibly be lenient, but if they reject you, just try again the next year
dont go straight to Plan B without even going to Plan A first

also, heres the proposed uni fees for next year, God only knows if it'll increase a year later if you take a gap
and who knows if student finance will even be able to cope with it all...
