    Can't you apply for more than one university? And can you apply afterwards? Honestly it's best to at least get a university degree than none at all.

    i am applying to other universities: greenwich, birkbeck and middlesex because i have five choices of unit but the problem is that i don't know if i should waste my options on unis that won't even accept me when they look at my predicted grades.

    Personally I wouldn't bother applying because universities know that predicted grades are the best case scenario so if your predicted grades don't even live up to that then it's unlikely they'll give you an offer. Also King's and Queen's are popular universities so they'll have hundreds of applicants with higher grades to choose from.

    I'm not sure what it's like in your school but at mine we were allowed to choose our final predicted grade on our ucas application (within reason) so the grades our subject teachers put down were fairly irrelevant, so if you haven't already double check with your head of hear or whoever sends off your final application? My teachers put me down as AAB but I was allowed to change it to AAA

    my school is crap the teachers won't allow anyone to change theirs until they get it signed by their actual subject teachers and my subject teachers won't let me change the C to a B they might change my A to an A* but i don't wanna get an offer using that grade and not get the grade and loose that offer. but thanks for the help! and ur si lucky u can choose ur predicted grades!
