    Yes i know their requirements are both A*AA. My predicted grades are A*AA but my AS grades fall short a little. Do the admissions people focus more on predicted or AS grades? thanks

    They look at both but as long as your predicted grades are good then you're personal statement will be the more important factor.

    How is yours coming along?
