Should there be a new university admissions system that ditches predicted grades?

No, I think predicted grades should still be used to make offers (554)
Yes, I like the idea of applying to uni after I received my grades (PQA) (674)
Yes, I like the idea of receiving offers only after I receive my grades (PQO) (330)
