    I achieved AS grades of AABB. The A's were very high, 100% in both and one B was only 2 UMS off. This means my school will predict me A*A*AB.

    On UCAS, do I apply to courses with standard offers of my predicted grades or course with standard offers of the AS grades I have achieved?

    I would apply to a mixture, obviously there is no point applying to 5 universities that have the exact same requirements. Just try and predict what you realistically think you will get like for me personally I knew the highest I would get would be AAB and the lowest would probably be around BBB so I ended up picking a BBB / x2 ABB / x2 AAB and firmed an AAB and had the BBB as my insurance as my worst case scenario. I think universities mainly just care that you're predicted grades are backed up by what you got at AS with a fluctuation of a grade or so either up or down, by the sounds of it you should be fine though!

    Ok, thank you. I will probably take your advice here. So like three A*AA, one AAA, and one AAB? That seems safe.

    You can apply to 5 so it is probably best to apply to a few that are your predicted grades and then maybe two that are a little lower around what you have at AS currently say AAA or AAB as an insurance
    Ok, thank you. A couple around my predicted and a couple around my actual grades. Thanks for the help.

    Yeah obviously don't follow it too strictly, take a look around and make sure to visit as many open days as you can you might find somewhere that you like a lot more than you would have expected
