    You need to phone/e-mail the admissions offices of where you want to go to and ask them. It will be depend they may look at it as sort cumulative grade and think A*AB = AAA or they may want you to show you can get A's in at least 3 subjects.

    Even then they'll know predicted grades aren't set in stone so they may just give you an offer of AAA even though you were predicted a B in one subject. It really does depend and you need to contact the admissions offices to find out.

    Do the universities see your UMS marks? Because i'm two marks away to an A (Psychology).
    Waiting on a remark, and also genuinely don't understand why my school didn't predict me an A if i was so close. Goshhhh.

    I actually don't know. Probably best to phone UCAS and ask (or any admissions office).

    No, but you can ask your teacher to include them in your reference.

    Not sure if that will resolve the problem since the issue is that his predictions don't meet the entry requirements.

    I mean, he could tell the universities his UMS one way or another and that might influence their decision, but they'll still be dissatisfied with his predictions.

    Yeah, I know. I was suggesting that he put his UMS into UCAS instead of wasting valuable characters from the reference.

    I agree that that's probably the best thing to do to show the universities how close he was.

    But should he apply for an AAA university with A*AB predictions? I think he could do it as an aspirational choice, but he should know that there's a good chance he will be rejected.

    Yeah, uni's don't place that much weight on predictions. He'll be fine.
