    I am currently in year 12 and have just finished my AS (year 1) exams. I am hoping to study Economics (Bsc) at university and I am currently studying economics, psychology and biology at sixth form.

    Instinctively I feel as though I have got a B in economics, high B/low A in psychology and a C/D in biology. The current requirements to study Economics (Bsc) at Kent is ABB.

    If I was to get the grades I think I'll get will my predicted grades be boosted so they are closer to ABB? Also If i was to get these grades what is the possibility of Kent university giving me an unconditional offer ?

    Sorry this is quite long, but i would greatly appreciate any helpful replies.
    Thanks

    Unconditional offers are not usually given, even if your predicted grades exceed the entry requirments. When I applied to universities (one being Kent through extra) my predicted grades were AAC and the requirments for the majority were CCC or BCC or BBB. I didn't get any unconditional offers. I played it safe and applied to a better on on results day with entry requirments of AAA. I would therefore say do not put your hopes on getting an unconditional as regardless of your grades this probably won't happen. If you are not sure you are going to get the grades, apply for average uni's and then try and do better to apply through adjustment to better uni's (this is however risky). However if you feel confident you can get the grades at the end of year 13 then just apply to the ones you want but I wouldn't expect an unconditional offer.

    I got an unconditional offer from Kent to study English and American Literature with an approved year abroad. I wouldn't recommend holding out for an unconditional offer cause universities are really random about who they offer them to. Predicted grades aren't even looked at that much as my AS grades were terrible (BCD) so just put a lot of effort into your personal statement and you should be fine.
    Good luck!
