    Do some tests, get really good grades, perform really well in mocks or something and show them you can get really good grades then they might change

    Surely you can convince your teacher to change them. At my sixth form, most people convince their teachers to give them good predicted grades and it usually works.*

    Consider applying after your A2's.

    Yes this I guess now I am funding my own degree when I go back no student loan and have to work to get that money on top of study i think more clearly.

    my plan is to sit the first set of exams apply with those results pending the latter exams. I apply to what I think is suitable based on results if I get rejected from my main choices I pull out of application process get my results have a gap year and apply with results in hand.

    You will likely incur over £30000 in debt plus interest. you will be spending 3-4 years of your life on the degree just take that extra year if you need it.

    Okay i see but i dont want to take a year off. Like i want to go to university and i dont to waste a year (not saying a gap year is awaster of year just a waste of year for me).
    I jusg forgot to mention my predicted grade changed. I got a letter and forgot to open it. Feel so stupid and its BBD. The D is in math. I got an E in my As in math and i am planning to retake c2 and s1 in january. So im kinda worried still. So do you think lancaster uni woupd accept this as predicted grades. Yes no

    I mean get your A2 results next year and if you are correct about being capable of better grades then apply for 2018 entry to unis such as Lancaster.

    It's not a 'year off'. It's a 'later application made necessary by your poor performance so far'.

    Do I think Lancaster will accept you with predictions of BBD for an AAB course and an E in AS Maths? No, very little chance of that. If they did, they would offer you AAB and I suspect that you would have to get above BBD (even if not AAB) to be accepted.

    Your attitude and analysis of the situation is wrong. I agree with ageshallnot. If your objctive is to get into Lancaster then you should elarn to make smart decisions and demonstrate a bit of patience.

    Yes you cna apply after your results when clearing starts.

    When i emailed the uni. They asked for AAA. And a B in gcse english and math. I got AAE in my as level and gcse english is a C and B in math. Do you think they will offer me a place if i geg like a C or B in math making it AAB. By the way when you apply through ucas do need to put down all your gcse grades in. This is out of curiousity.

    If you have a firm offer elsewhere and then exceed that offer you can use Adjustment to apply to 'better' unis. You would have a five-day window to do so without the risk of losing your existing place.

    OK, I was guessing at AAB because I didn't know which exact course you are interested in applying for. If they want AAA then your chances are even less. This is made worse by the fact that they want a B in GCSE English and you only have a C. While this might seem unimportant, unis often use these basic GCSE standards as a 'first sort' to reject candidates.

    However, if you achieved AAE at AS, why on earth are you being predicted BBD?

    And yes, you have to enter all your qualifications and grades.

    Just your individual GCSE grades.

    UMS is only really used by Cambridge University and for AS/A-levels only. And less so now because linear/reformed A-levels don't have UMS at all.
