    I was just wondering whether universities look at the current as grades you have know or look at your predicted grades. This is because i recently got my as-level results, and they weren't very good. I got 3 B's and a C, but the problem is i was of an A in the 3 subjects by about 4 marks each time due to 1 messed up module. This means my teachers are still likely to predict m A's in those subjects and i can get the A's if i really work now, but i was wondering whether Universities will look at my AS grades first off or the predicted grades or when making offers, and which ones are they likely to take preference towards. Them making offers also includes work xp and voluntary work and PS of course, but thats not my main concern at the moment.

    Thanks in Advance

    They'll want to see potential, and what you're like as a person, not just as an academic.

    Alot depends on the confidential reference the school/college writes, that is attached to your UCAS form.

    Resit the trouble modules in january and make sure you net AAB in the January resits before June, so you can concentrate on A-levels only.

    Prove them wrong and get the grades!

    I was thinking of applying to do medicine with predicted AAA at A2 but I'm not sure if I have enough work experience/extra curricular activities!Already done 1 work exp. got another lined up before September I hope.I've never done millennium volunteers scheme or DofE and Im just wondering if Im wasting my time. The only other thing I do outside school is musical instrument lessons to a high standard. Im so stuck and gonna have to decide pretty soon

    Any advice???
