    AS grades = BCD
    But my prediction grades are the same (school doesn't raise predictions)
    I'm retaking a module to go from a D to a C/B
    And more effort in a2 as it gets harder.

    Entry requirement = ABB - BBB (320 points)
    For the course i want to do

    Do you reckon I'll have a chance of recieveing an offer? With a good personal statement and reference?

    Applying for even a BBB course with BCD - unlikely. Worth a shot if you really want to go there, but be prepared not to get an offer and make sure you have more realistic uni choices for your other four

    To be honest, not really. You're 3-4 grades short at AS, and predicted to still be 3-4 grades short at A2. It's bit of a long-shot option.

    Even if you were to get an offer, do you think you'd be able to meet the conditions?

    No, for the reasons Potally_Tissed gave above. No PS or reference can take the place of inadequate grades.

    There is nothing to stop you having a go, and if they don't get a lot of applicants with better grades, then who knows? You have five choices, so it does no harm to bet one on a risky shot.

    What course are you aiming for? The type of course and how competitive it is really influences the decision they make on whether to offer you a place or not

    I'm a final year student at City University and they accepted me with BBC even though the requirements were BBB

    As competitive as a course like law is, my cousin was in a similar situation as you, she graduated last year but at the time made up for her grades with a stellar personal statement (on as grades BBC) prepare yourself as it may result in a rejection just because that D might drag you down and the nature of how selective law schools can be but it's definitely worth a try!
