I'm guessing you're doing the new A-Levels? I'm not sure how those work, but I did apply to UCL, Imperial and Durham (for chemistry) and my offers were NOT the same as the entry requirements (other than UCL) - my UCL offer was AAA, Durham A*AA, and Imperial A*A*A (some people even got A*A*A* offers this year, which is ridiculous considering they claim their standard offer is AAA ). Kings, I'm pretty sure, offer AAB. You've got 5 choices on UCAS - make sure that 2/3 of them are within your predicted grades, one (or two if you're feeling adventurous ) a grade above what you're predicted (as a high risk choice, obviously grades aren't the only thing universities consider so you should at least try!) and maybe one safe choice that's below your predicted grades because things happen and you sometimes don't end up with exactly the grades you want/need. Retake some maths modules to ensure that an A prediction is realistic (and justified). I also recommend that you visit universities on open days just to make sure you'd actually want to go there (unless you really can't). I didn't... and ended up being annoyed at myself for a wasting a choice on UCL (realised I didn't like it when I came in for an interview...). Start early! Work a little every day from September up to your exams, don't wait until April to start 'revision' if you work throughout the year you'll hopefully feel less stressed (... there's always hope ). Other than that, good luck!Last edited by victoria98; 19-08-2016 at 12:39.
