Importance of predicted grades watch

    Hi, I got 10 A*'s at GCSE and 4A's at AS level, and I am applying to study Law at Oxford and UCL among other places.
    Unfortunately I'm only predicted A*AAA (which annoyed me, as I got 88% in 2 of the subjects I'm predicted A's for).

    I was wondering how import predicted grades are to Uni's? Will most successful applicants to these places be predicted better? Or is it that once you reach or exceed the entry requirements it doesn't really matter?

    Thanks in advance

    I'm certainly not an expert but as the current entry requirements are A*AA you should be fine. Combined with amazing GCSE results and a good LNAT score 'only' one predicted A* shouldn't be an issue.

    Okay thanks for the feedback. Do you think choices of Oxford, UCL, Bristol Warwick and Exeter are good? I really wanted to apply to KCL as well but I thought 4 LNAT Uni's is too much. My worry is that both Oxford and UCL are extremely hard to get offers for and so I don't want to end up getting rejected from both when I could have applied to KCL which is slightly easier to get into

    They seem like great choices, and I plan to apply to three unis that look at the LNAT as well in case it goes badly. As for Oxford/UCL being hard to get into, you've got a very competitive application so I wouldn't worry much about that. While there are a large number of rejections, most of the rejected candidates probably won't have such high GCSE/AS scores, and combined with enough going on outside school (DofE, work experience etc.) you've probably got a higher chance of gaining an offer than most I'd say.
