    Before I start, I realise that noone will know for sure what a university will take exactly into account for accepting people, I'm just asking for your opinion

    I'm going to be applying for the Biomedical Sciences BsC at Birmingham university, for which the typical offer is AAA-AAB. Biology is required and Physics and Maths are preferred.

    My exams didn't all go so well. The grades I think I got are as follows (these are AS):

    Physics - AB possibly AA
    Biology - AA
    Maths- BBC possibly BCC

    I'm hoping and praying that they will at least offer me a conditional offer with these grades, because I plan on never leaving the house all year to pull those grades up to AAA next year.

    What do you think?

    What matters is what your predicted grades are. If you are predicted the right grades then you will be considered.

    You will need to discuss this with the universities, who will expect to see predicted grades. Whoever provides your reference will have to supply something credible.

    My reference will have to be from my line manager at work... Do you think if I predicted my own grades based on what I get in AS, and my referee confirms them in his reference, that would be acceptable?

    You should ask the universities what they think about this, because they expect to see an academic reference from someone who has knowledge of your academic ability. There are ways round this, but it's not my field, since working in a school means we don't have this problem.
