    Hi guys

    I will be applying in the 2014 cycle and I will be applying from an eastern european country (so I am an EU student).

    Some of my friends said that entering predicted grades is not a must in UCAS platform - and that I should not enter predicted grades in the platform (we really don't have so called "predicted grades" in our country's educational system)

    However, I have just seen on various websites that a teacher recommendation letter SHOULD include my predicted grades.

    Could you guys comment on it? Should I enter predicted grades or not in the UCAS platform, if not, why should my teacher recommendation letter mention it?

    It just does not make sense - you guys from GB enter your predicted grades in UCAS, and also your teacher mention it in the reference letter. What's the point in doing that if your predicted grades have already been given on the platform?

    Thanks, I am kinda confused!

    There isn't a place to put your predicted grades yourself (at least I didn't see it and no one I know did). Only your teachers put it on their reference. This makes sense because you could put any sort of predicted grades that you wanted and people would definitely lie.
