If you're predicted one below their requirements, you still have a chance of getting in.

And are those BBB unis actually BBB or are they 300 points? I applied to two ""BBB unis"" when in reality they were 300 points requirements.

Ah, I see.

You still have a reasonable chance of getting an offer at both BBB and ABB universities, but it depends on how important the C subject is to your degree as opposed to the A subject (so if you're applying for English Lit and the A is in Eng Lit and the C is Physics, you'd have a higher chance than if it was the other way around).

Make sure you have a few BBC/BCC universities as a backup, however.

Unfortunately very limited choices as majority are BBB or higher so i have to split over two courses so i have a good chance for offers unless i take a risk with one course and as per our discussion

Visit whatuni. You can put in your expected grades (or points, most importantly) there.

A reasonable spread of grades would be 1 or two universities that ask for ABB, BBB, making up no more than 3 slots of options. Then, a couple of 300 point universities (or just the one, if that's all you can find), and then one BBC/280 points uni, of which there will likely be at least one.
