    Do you think you can exceed your predictions? It’s fine to have a few riskier choices. Just make sure you have at least one backup choice that you like so you have a good insurance option.

    Yeah ask them to change it if they can on the promise that you'll work much harder to exceed you predictions.

    However, it isn't too much of an issue as unis can still make you an offer higher than your predictions, for example my friend was predicted DMM for their first year and ended up getting offers for DDD courses and they didn't even get it changed
