    I have been predicted an A and two D's at A level, but i know i can do better! Last year I competed for Great Britain in my sport which caused me to miss a lot of school and a few years ago i had an illness (brain damage) which made me miss a year of school and took two years to recover from. I am an able student but with bad predictions. What do I do?! I really want to go to uni but it requires ABB at a level, which I know I can get I'm just not predicted that

    If your teachers wont change their predictions, then I would get my results first and then apply. You could apply with ADD, but you might get rejections or they could listen to your extenuatings. If it were me I would sit the A level;s and apply after.
