    Hi

    I have been looking at various unis and found that for the course (geophysics) I would like to do in one grade out. I am just wondering how much room to manoeuvre a uni will give you in terms of entrance requirements (I'm not applying to Oxbridge). Or is it worth me trying to persuade my tutor to raise my predicted grade a bit?

    Yes. Since AS levels don’t carry much weight anymore your university will make an offer on the basis that you are predicted the grades they need you to achieve to get into their chosen course. If you aren’t predicted grades that match Oxbridge requirements for a course you will likely be rejected.

    If it’s one grade out they *might* lower their offer but this is incredibly rare, unless they make a four grade offer (A*A*AA instead of A*A*A* for example).

    Universities often make offers to applicants who are predicted a grade lower than the official entry requirements. However, any offer will almost certainly be at the typical level.

    It would then be up to you as to whether you accept it.
