    Unfortunately it may not be possible.

    This is taken from the university's website:

    " As a general rule, applicants who are given the opportunity to attend an interview should have a good set of AS and GCSE grades (including Grade B in Mathematics and English Language), with a predicted minimum of ABB at A-level.
    If your AS grades are below standard, but your school confidently expects you to achieve a minimum of ABB at A-level, your referee should explain his/her confidence in your ability on the UCAS form.....Selection for interview is based on predicted grades of ABB."

    If you haven't submitted your UCAS yet, then there may still be a chance. If you're predicted grades are below standard - as they have said - then as long as your referee mentions on your UCAS form that they fully believe you have the capability to achieve better results and are able to meet the minimum ABB, then this will play in your favour and increase your chances, but I wouldn't get your hopes up/count on it too much.

    If you are genuinely set on going to the University of Manchester, then you could just play the year out and wait until you receive your results. It may be possible to go through adjustment, but they receive 1,600 applications a year for Pharmacy, so their places may be filled. You could alternatively wait until next year to apply when you have received your grades if you do honestly believe you'll get at least ABB.
