    I am slightly confused about how predicted grades and conditional offers work.

    Lets say a university's requirement for a course is AAA and someone applying is predicted A*A*A*. This therefore means that they will get a conditional offer of A*A*A* (im guessing? or is it AAA?), what if the person doesnt get those grades and gets AAA? Does the uni have to reconsider that applicant as they didnt meet the conditional offer? or do they still get accepted as they still meet the minimum requirement?

    Someone please explain lol.

    I think it depends on the student and the course

    A university can make whatever offer they want. If you're predicted A*A*A* for example, and the typical offer/requirement is AAA, then they may say 'hey, he/she is capable, let's push up the offer a little bit', so they might throw at you a A*AA offer.

    But what ever offer they give you, you ideally have to meet that offer.

    The wording is usually 'typical offer' - you have to get what the uni asks for, sometimes exactly ie offer BBB then ABC might not be accepted as equivalent.

    If your offer is A*A*A* then that's what you have to get.

    That's exactly my query.

    All I need is AAA for my KCL offer. But my predicted grades will probably be A*A*A or A*AA. I may just get my teachers to lower prediction to AAA...

    If you got an offer from KCL, it would be for AAA - it would only be lower or higher if there were extraordinary circumstances. You'd just have to get AAA, and if you did, you'd be accepted - you wouldn't be penalised for not achieving your predicted grades. Please don't get your predicted grades lowered - they'd potentially make you a weaker applicant, as higher predictions make you look more capable, and there is literally no harm having the highest predictions possible; it just makes you look like a good candidate, and as long as you eventually achieve whatever your conditional offer is, you'll have a place.
