    Not true. Admittedly your predicted grades are not the best, I was predicted the same last year, then bartered with my teachers, handed in essay after essay showing my worth, I took voluntary tests etc. to prove I can achieve better.

    I managed to push my grades up to ABC, still not amazing but I ended up with 5/5 offers with 4 with AAB, 1 with BBC, and 1 unconditional.

    So work hard, prove to your teachers you can do better and ask for a boost.

    Remember predicted grades are just that. they are not final. you could come out the other side with three As if you try your best. in that case, you could then take a Gap year and reapply with your amazing grades!

    I have to submit my universities this Thursday so I won't be able to do extra tests. I have already bartered to get a B instead of a C.
