    Okay so i just wanted to know something, I have applied for university this year, i have got back 2 conditionals as off yet ( still waiting for the other 3 :/ ).. Anyway i kind off kept my options safe and haven't really went for the best universities and now im thinking i have made a REALLY big mistake because my work is improving and im so motivated. The conditionals as off yet are asking for 2 b's and a c which is preety easy for me. So.. i was just wondering if after my results come if my grades are higher could i apply to a better university? would i be able to do that?

    Yes, it's called Adjustment. But bear in mind that only about 400 people found a place using it last year.
