    U have A-Level results ABB with the A in eng lit n would ideally like to study that at Uni

    Would there be much point applying to Unis' asking for AAB, simply because my grades are not pending?

    Thanks

    Well as you already have you alevels, there is no point pciking insurances so you may as well pick a couple that are AAB, as long as you have a good number 3/4 that are ABB but yeh i'd go for it.

    It is usually best to apply to universities which have grade requirements above your predicted grades, equal to your predicted grades, and below your predicted grades. This way you have a nice balance of choices, and are preparing for the best and worst case scenarios

    You could do, but try to ensrue that you have somewhere which matches your grades. Remember that you have 6 choices, so there is plenty of oppotunity for applying to places that are above and meet your grades.

    Definitely. You may not get in, but there's not much point applying to places that ask for less than ABB because you already have those grades, so you could try maybe 2 that want AAB, 3 that want ABB and 1 that wants BBB as a back up, according to your preferences.
