    I am currently in A2 and my AS results were not good at all, BDEE.. Disappointing, I know. My college would never accept grades like this into A2 but I talked my way through it all and assured them that I will do better which I am aiming to do ofcourse(Trust me, it was not easy). It was a 2 week process where I had interviews with several different teachers and my teachers from last year all gave good references for me to get in. Anyway I'm going off point.

    Now..

    My AS levels will have a huge factor with my predicted grades, now I want to go to brunel university to study business and management or business with ICT. (Yeah there are people here who will comment things saying how they got 4 A's and are going to oxford or Cambridge, well done lol) but I am aiming for this course.

    Usually predicted grades are 1 above AS. I should get ACD. Maybe a C for one of my E's. Im wondering if I could apply to universities with ACC and get a conditional offer when their requirements may be BBB (thats what brunels requirement is for my course)

    Now im really confused and worried about this because brunel is a good university to get into (for me) but its a uni I can get into with hard work and revision all year. I do believe I can get 3 b's at the end as I did not work anywhere near as hard enough last year.

    So to sum things up.

    My predicted grade may be either ACD or ACC and I want to apply to a course with BBB requirements. What are my chances of getting a conditional offer?


    Thankyou!

    Honestly, its a risky chance to take considering your AS grades and predictions, maybe try one BBB course and go for the rest that are based off ucas point instead of grades.
