I do Biology, Chemistry Physics and Maths currently. At AS I achieved AABC respectively but my predictions are lower at ABBB. I want to apply for Pharmacy at UCL but I am concerned, will they overlook predictions of AS grades are better?

Go talk to your teachers and tell them to buck up their ideas (more nicely of course!). If they don't want to then tell them (or email) yu want a meeting to occur between you, your parents and the school. It'll scare the living s*** out of them and they;ll give you bettwr predicted grades.

I myself really pushed for good predicted grades and after getting AABB at AS I got predicted of A*A*A.

That's really unfair... They should predict you AAA, even A*A*A if your A grades were 87/90% above. As long as they're not too high so the Unis don't take you seriously and look bad on the school, and you have a back up which is AAB or similar there is no reason why they shouldn't predict you a little higher. You're almost an adult ! If you miss your offers then it's your own problem, but you should have the freedom to be more ambitious ! ( within reason). It will give you a motivation to work harder. I agree with above, parents meetings scare the crap out of teachers.

I would politely suggest to your teacher that the predicated grades should be higher based on AS results. However if your teacher has only has evidence to back up the grades originally predicted then they really have a responsibility to stick to those grades. This could be through homework, coursework, class tests, etc...

Upping predicted grades should never happen based just because it is requested, or because you need it for a course.

Good luck.

Only really in situations where teachers have taken or have been forced to take shortcuts in processes.
