    My target grades at AS were CCD after I got mostly Bs and Cs at GCSE. I got high As in all my AS levels to the point where i only need to get Bs this year to get an A overall.

    Despite this, my predicted grades for A2 are BCC, which i would consider a huge failure if i got overall after a successful AS year.

    Can these target grades be changed and if not do they prevent University's from sending me an offer even if I get the require grades for the course??

    Those are really unreasonable predictions? I swear teachers aren't even allowed to predict you grades lower than what you got- did you ask them about it?

    That's ridiculous. BBB should the absolute minimum prediction. A*AB/AAB would be reasonable.

    Have a talk with your subject teachers.

    If you got AAA at AS, being predicted BCC is definitely unreasonable. Surely you should expect to be predicted AAA at least?

    If you applied to unis asking for AAA with BCC predictions, then those unis could very well reject you. I suggest you go and talk to the teachers who've predicted you BCC because as others have said your predictions are unreasonable.
