    Hi there,

    By the title, don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining in any way at all!


    I'm worried that, since this was going to be my firm, I may not get their offer of AAB. (I'm only predicted ABB)
    I was surprised to receive an offer at all, never mind one that is higher than my predicted grades.

    The course that I'm applying for suggests either:
    > AAB
    > ABB with A at EPQ

    I have predicted grades of ABB and B at EPQ (and I cannot raise the EPQ grade)

    At the minute, I'm not sure if it's too much of a risk to make this my firm. (And I don't have an insurance that I'm anywhere near as interested in)

    Any advice on this/ does anyone know if I would still get an offer if I achieved just my predicted grades?

    [ I understand that many people will ask these sorts of questions and I've looked through other threads, but I'd prefer to make it specific to my own case so I can understand what to do next ]

    Thank you

    Why not just make it your firm? If you don't get it, you'll have an insurance. At least you have a shot at getting into Sheffield. Even if you don't make your grades, you still might get a spot. Just put an insurance with lower entry requirements.

    Makes more sense than not even putting it down if you're really interested in it. You still have the insurance. You don't have an insurance that you're as interested in which means you don't have a firm that you're as interested in. So... I don't really see why you wouldn't make Sheffield your firm.
