    I was in the same sort of situation - AABB at AS and now predicted A*A*AA - and I got an offer. I know other people got offers with lower AS grades as well - they are just one part of lots of different bits of the application, so don't let predicted AS grades stop you applying if you want to!

    A good LNAT performance will show that you are more reasonably expected to meet the grade requirements at A2, but as mentioned above try not to overthink predicted grades.

    I got AABC at AS and was predicted A*AA at A2. I received an offer of AAA and finished my A2 year with A*A*A.

    Yeah I was worried about this last year, so at the open day I basically asked every single tutor I came across just how important AS grades were. They are not factored into any 'calculations' they make, in the way that interviews or GCSEs etc are. All you need is to have the requisite predicted grades and you're all good. Obviously your predicted grades will depend on getting decent AS results though.
