Hi all, I am considering applying to Manchester, Nottingham, Sheffield (all grade requirements A,A,A) and Kings (A*,A,A). So I was wondering,if I am predicted A*, A,A and I receive offers from Manchester and Nottingham but in the actual a levels I actually get grades A,A,A, do I still get my place at any of these 2 unis?

If you firm and insure two AAA unis and achieve AAA then you get into your firm choice. Is that what you're asking?

I applied to Manchester and Nottingham last year for Medicine and got interviewed at both universities, and got an offer from Nottingham. If you achieve AAA you get in.

Your predictions are irrelevant once you have an offer. If you miss the terms of a medicine offer it's unlikely the university will accept you.

If I applied to Manchester (which has requirements AAA) with grades predicted A*AA, and I get an offer, would my offer only stand if I achieve the A*AA I was predicted or would I get in as long as I satisfy the basic requirements of AAA in the actual A Level

Can you ever get a medicine offer where you have to get grades higher than the basic entry requirements they say on the website?

No because it will be unfair to the candidate. The typical offers are all in here: https://www.medschools.ac.uk/media/2...al-schools.pdf

Depends on the university but usually not.

So me being predicted A*AA to apply for King’s has no chance of being detrimental to my applications to other unis if I end up getting AAA in the actual exam?

I don't understand what you mean.

However, if your prediction exceeds the typical offer for that Uni, then that's ok of course. You can be predicted A*A*A* and if you applied to a Uni with a typical AAA offer, then it is most likely that your offer will be AAA.

Ok thanks, that clears up my question
