    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?

    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.
