    Hi,daughter doing A levels next summer in EngLit , pyscology and history. Current predictions are AAB though Eng Teacher states more than capable with hard work of getting AAA. Looks like her UCAS predictive grades will he AAB though. She has her heart set on University's that are wanting AAA. Do the UCAS predictive grades preclude her from applying for these universities? If it does but she does achieve AAA on results day can she then apply for one of the AAA Universities. I was hoping the school might amend her UCAS predictive grades to AAA but sadly this might not be the case. Thanks for any info

    Universities will look at things other than just predicted grades when deciding whether to make an offer.

    With AAB predictions she should be fine applying to 2/3 AAA courses.

    But it's worth putting in the effort over the summer to get ahead with her studies to convince her English teacher that she's capable of getting an A. They are often willing to increase a prediction if a student demonstrates an improvement.

    If she does get AAA, she could always apply through adjustment to a course with higher requirements.
