    I am hoping to do English at Edinburgh or Glasgow university but my predictions are trashy as you can see. I am applying for 2018 intake, is there any chance that the unis will give me an offer based on my IGCSE grades, personal statement and reference. Are there any suggestions for other universities?

    It's extremely unlikely you'd get an offer with those predictions. Realistically, you would be best off doing as well as you can in your exams then applying in a gap year.

    Equally poorer predictions in year 12 mocks doesn't necessarily mean much - I was under-predicted 7 points in IB on the basis of our year 12 mocks - provided you take the opportunity to put the work in where it's needed.
