    Hi. So for example, if my teachers predict me A*A*A* for a course that requires AAA, and I receive an offer from them, am I supposed to achieve the grades my teachers predicted me or do I just need to meet the entry requirements of the uni? Thanks.

    The grades your uni has offered you. They don't really care what your teacher thinks you should get as long as you're up to their standards.

    You have to meet the requirements for the university. If you attended an interview then you would get a conditional offer and you have to meant those grades or above. If you get an unconditional offer then you will get into the university and it doesn't matter if you did not meant the grades.

    Generally, you will get a conditional offer. That is what they call it at university. To answer your question: uni grades.

    Unis can give you an offer of whatever they like. The AAA required in the prospectus is just the standard offer, and they could ask you for higher or lower. /they can also ask for other components, such as a DBS check or occupational health clearance.

    You need to check the offer you have been given via UCAS Track. You then need to meet that offer exactly as it is stated - or exceed it. So if they ask for AAB but with an A in physics, you need to obtain those grades as stated - you can't just get AAB but a B in physics.
