    Predicted grades: A*A*AA, Maths, Chemistry, Physics(provisionally it will move up to A* before sending my application) and Further Maths. I'm also doing an EPQ this year.

    I understand that my grades are below par for the course but my personal statement is strong and I believe that I can perform relatively well in the admissions assessment. Do I have a reasonable chance at getting an interview?

    Your UMS is fine. Don't worry about D2.

    Do well in the NSAA and you can be competitive.
