    After all exams and mocks my teacher predicted me ABB but Uni I am applying for is requiring AAA, would it be ok to apply with ABB and get offer with AAA. I got all straight A and A* in my IGCSE. And thanks to my school they will declare our AS results into UCAS application (you dont even need to do AS ie my sciences cuz its the new A level) This really worries me.

    so you're saying that there still some chances that i will get offer higher than predicted grade? this is good to know, i dont see why school would declare our AS or make us do AS that's not count towards our A2 at first.

    Yes, if you do AS UCAS says you have to declare them so it's not the schools choice in that sense.

    Because AS grades are a good indication of A Level capabilities, and the universities need to know how capable you are of achieving their required grades. GCSEs aren't such a good indication, a lot (I'm not saying all) of people who get straight A*s in their GCSEs won't do as well at A Levels, and a lot of people who do well in their GCSEs (but not amazingly) will do amazingly well at A Level, so GCSEs are not a good indication, or at least not as good as ASs.
