    Hi, I'm in yr 13 right now, and I'm trying to submit my UCAS application.
    But I don't have any of my grades yet, because I'm still taking the qualifications.

    I've tried putting down my predicted grades, but that then brings up the "grades are set for a future date" error. I've changed all my grades to "pending" now, and the error is gone. But I'm worried that my application now looks awful?? My GCSE grades are all A-B grades, but my a levels are blank and I'm worried this will look bad to the universities I'm applying to.

    I'm wanting to study animation, and I am currently taking Art&Design, Media, and English lit/Lang combined.

    That's correct- the predictions go in the reference

    Don’t worry - everyone who is applying to University and hasn’t taken their A Levels yet will have applications that look the same as yours. Universities are used to seeing it, and are interested in the predicted grades that your reference has in it. Hope this helps and good luck with your application!
