- Basically I just received AACD in my AS results (in biology, English, maths and chemistry respectively)
in general I am happy with my A results but here's the problem: my dream is to study biomedical sciences, and the unis I was looking at require AAB (usually) to include chemistry in at least B. Obviously, I got a D which is extremely dissapointing - if I had got even a C I could have been predicted that B but now that's looking impossible and I will get predicted a C.
so here's my question : when it comes to applying to uni, and I want to apply for unis like Cardiff, southampton etc, they require AAB. Is there any chance I'd get offers even with predicted AAC (or even A*AC, I'm not sure yet), or do you think they'd instantly say no? Has anyone else been lucky and received an offer which asked for SLIGHTLY more than your predicted grades??
note: I am resitting the chem exams and confident I can work towards a B.
Is it possible to get an offer (requiring AAB) when you're predicted AAC? watch

I was predicted ABB but got an offer for a biological sciences course that's AAB so yeah it can definitely happen
However because they're asking for a specific chemistry grade that may make it more difficult
Try and encourage your teachers to predict you a B if you're certain you can get it, that's what I had to do. I got a C at AS and had to spend weeks practically begging my teachers to predict me a B. Ended up with an A so joke's on them

ahh thank you! It's comforting to know that universities will make offers even if your predicted grades aren't the exact required ones. It's unlikely I'll get predicted a B grade when I got a D at AS though.
