    I am unsure about my some of my university choices as they want BBB and I am predicted BCC by my teachers, I am also planning on sitting Polish at As and A2 as a private candidate and predict myself to receive an A grade as it is my native language and I have received A* at GCSE. Also re-siting all my exams apart from Law 01 this year so in a best case scenario I can see myself getting ABC at the end of the year so I am not sure if I should keep the Unis that I put down even though I currently do not have the predicted grades for them. If it helps the Unis I have selected are: Aston, Keele, Nottingham trent, Birmingham city and Coventry.

    The usual advice would be no more than two, and preferably one, above your predicted grades, and the rest at or below them. Some universities won't accept your native language as one of the A levels they will make their offers on, although the ones you have listed aren't particularly picky. You should contact them and ask first if you are pinning your hopes on your Polish to bring the grades up.

    My problem is that I don't want to go far away and even the lower ranked unis want BBB or BBC in my area and right now Birmingham City looks like my best bet and I am not sure if I even have predicted grades for that. I think I will just keep it as it is.
    What I am trying to say is my predicted grades because of last years lack of effort are so bad 90% of unis have higher entry requirements.

    Hey there. We've got an Open Day this Saturday. You could come, have a look around and talk to some of our lecturers. I am sure they would be happy to talk you through all the options that are available to you. http://www.bcu.ac.uk/student-info/open-days/november
