    Hi.
    So I was rejected from my dream university because my predicted grades were low. ABCD
    Later on, during January I realized that they changed the entry requirements from AAB to ABB

    They rejected me because my predicted grades were low and they also said that regrettably my academic profile was low compared to other applicants.
    Later on, I asked if they'd accept applications during Adjustment. They told me Yes, I can still contact them on results day. Regardless of that, I feel like they just didn't like my application or me as an individual. Do you reckon I should contact them on results day if I get the grades, because it's the same as my conditional offer or should I just leave and accept that they just didn't like me even when the course isn't that competitive?

    Thanks.

    In order to go through adjustment, you'll need to exceed the conditions of your firm offer. If your firm is asking for ABB, you'd need to get at least AAB to be eligible for adjustment.

    That said, if you are eligible for adjustment, you have nothing to lose by giving the uni a ring on results day, if you're still keen.

    If they have rejected you, they are not going to be interested in you via Adjustment, I'm afraid. They could have made you an aspirational offer above your predicted grades if they had wanted to, but instead they were honest and said your profile was low compared to others. That's not just your predicted grades but the whole package. This sounds harsh, I know, but you are better off accepting and embracing the attainable than becoming upset over the unattainable.
