I want to apply to one university where my predicted grades are below the entry requirements.

My predicted grades: AAB

King's College London entry requirements: AAA

University College London entry requirements: A*AA

I used the UCAS offer rate claculator and it said i have a 28% chance to get an offer from UCL and 21% to get an offer from Kings.

Which university shall I choose? Kings with the lower entry requirements but 21% chance or UCL with higher entry requirements but 28% chance?

I also don't know if the UCAS offer rate calculator is accurate.

It's not, universities recommend not using it.

If you're predicted two grades below the UCL standard offer I think it's very unlikely (especially with no A* predicted). One grade below for KCL seems more reasonable as a stretch option, I'd suggest going with that.

The UCAS offer rate calculator is based on data from UCAS applications in previous years - it can be a decent general indicator, but isn't perfectly accurate. Larger courses that get more applicants are more likely to be realistic I guess...
