    To do the course I want to do at university, I need ABB, with the A being in either biology or chemistry. However, my predicted grades are ABB at the moment, but my A is in psychology. I don't know if I will be turned away for this or not... What should I do?

    Generally speaking, you'd be rejected instantly for not meeting the minimum requirements.

    No, they do not raise your grade by 1, they lower the standard offer by 1, essentially you have the same chance as everyone, it is just that your offer may be 1 grade lower, this is not guaranteed as you have met the entry requirement
