Would applying for AAB uni courses with predicted AAC grades be a bad idea? watch

    Hi, I was predicted a grade lower in Drama than what I thought I would be, so my predicted grades are AAC, but I do have an A in my EPQ. MY first choice uni wants AAA/AAB, and I do think I could get AAB at the end of this year. However, I am aware applying there is risky, and they having limited places, so I wanted your opinion?

    You should still apply there - it might motivate you to try even harder to get the grades you need to get in. However, make sure you also apply to some 'insurance' unis (Uni's that require your predicated grades on less, to ensure a place at a uni!)

    Yeah sure, you still have 4 other places where you could apply that offer lower. Also, if you are rejected this year and get AAB you could apply next year with a really good chance.

    Check and see whether the uni will accept a grade lower with a high EPQ grade. Maybe try and chat to your Drama teacher as well, and see whether you can convince them to raise your grade?

    I'd say it's pretty pointless to apply to a university with higher grades then you are predicted because they just won't offer you a place. That's true of anywhere. But then again, it's always worth the risk to apply, you won't lose anything from it.
