    Hi, I am applying to study business management and I am a retake student. Last year I got 2 grade C's and an A in the Extended project. I only did 2 A levels last year so I'm now completing another A Level which is AS and A2 business studies and on top of that repeating one of my C grades hoping to up that to a B or an A. My query is if a university requires the grades BBB but my predicted grade is BBC baring in mind the C grade is the A level I have already completed, and will not change would I still be likely to get an offer?
    Depends on the uni. Lower down then the more chance.

    You can try using the ucas offer calculator.

    If the entrance was BBB and you got BBC, then youd have to see how many others made the offer , then they spread the rest of the places out or shove them into clearing.
