    Depends on prior exam performance and personal statement as well. They don't solely make offers on predicted grades.

    You can always ask universities directly what weighting they put on predictions

    Only universities can answer this - different universities use different admissions criteria.

    Check the websites for those you're interested in and ask them by email directly :yes:
