Applying as an individual? Watch
However now, this largely affects me even getting an offer so I want to apply individually, because everything in my application is actually very useful for the course (run my own PC repair business, developed a website with local charity, know many programming languages etc) apart from the pred. grades which are far off. My pred. grades are B(Maths),B(Economics),C(Further maths) and I want to do computer science at loughborough which says typical offers are ABB (A in Maths). On top of that there are so many more better references I can put down in terms of people who I have worked with etc.
So please can I have the 'blunt truth' about applying individually through UCAS. Do top universities see it as an issue? What then happens with my predicted grades, do i predict them myself? Are you less likely to get in?
Not really much else to be done, but as above some universities make offers to lower predicted students (of their standard offer i.e. your offer will be higher than your predicted grades), and a very well crafted personal statement might help convince them to make an offer to see if you can in fact rise to that level.
