    Hello
    I just wanted some advice on applying to UCL School of Pharmacy. UCL accept AAA/AAB however I am predicted ABC so I was wondering if I should apply or not. I do believe that I will get better grades than ABC and I actually really want to go to UCL but I'm worried I'm going to go straight to the no pile. Any advice?
    Thank you

    It's worth applying as predicted grades are less weighted than AS grades, for example. How did you do at AS? GCSE?

    Could you get your teachers to predict you higher if you can provide evidence to them that you can do better?

    Don't be disheartened, there's loads of people in the same situation as you. If you really want to go to UCL, I'd focus on getting good grades at the end of the year, then apply through adjustment. You could also take a gap year and apply with your A2 grades. There are also other really good unis that'll accept you with your predicted's, UCL isnt the be all and end all. Good luck!
