Not unless you bribe the admissions tutor.

It's always worth a try. People will tell you that there's no point. But trust me, if all your other point in application are strong (i.e. reference, personal statement), you still stand a chance, maybe not as strong as the people with better predicted grades, but you still do.

If your predictions are closer to the grades you are applying for then its possible with a solid ps etc.

It probably depends on your teachers references, and the degree you want to do. It also depends on the uni, I didn't do great in my AS-levels and asked the admissions tutor from Glasgow Uni if it was worth applying, she e-mailed me back saying they didn't factor in the AS results when making an offer. But that might depend upon the course, and your personal statement and references probably add to it.

Depends on your predicted grades. It's not impossible but try to look at courses with lower entry requirements as well

I know a few people who got AS grades like BCCE or BCDE but they were predicted BBB. They applied for Pharmacy and received offers of ABB.

Maybe email or call the admission tutor? It depends on what uni you're applying to, I think.

It depends on the course and uni as all have different policies. But "generally" your predictions of ABB seems realistic as one grade above BCC. Aiming for AAB unis is a bit too far though. One grade above in all subjects is pushing it. I would say got for one ABB, three BBB/BBC and one or two BCC or lower.

My friend was predicted BBC, and has received two offers of ABB. It does depend on what and where you are applying though.

I was hoping to apply to Newcastle university for geography BA which is ABB .. do you think my aspirations are too high ?

I have been to Oxford university on a summer school to do law and got a grade A .. will this strengthen my personal statement along with my passion for geography and travelling experience ?
