Predicted grades help!

    • Thread Starter

    I have just received my predicted grades of AAC, and wondered what would be the highest university entry requirements that I could apply to with those grades?
    Many thanks!

    Predicted grades arent to be trusted tbh. I got A's in science but due to me not giving 2 shits about german and other subjects i have no interest in(systems re and geography) my predicted grade was a C. So just see what your getting in subjects before making any assumptions of what you will get.

    Depending on what you think you can get, technically the highest you can apply i guess is A*A*B. But obviously, this depends on how high your A's and C was. If it was a solid A, C, then if you work hard, especially because most subjects are linear, then you can easily make up this year, and get higher grades. However general rule at least at my school is that you can apply up to 2 higher grades than predicted grades. Realistically I would then aim for AAB, and if you think you can get A*, then A*AB.

    Hope that helps.
