    I applied for chemistry which requires at least A*A*A predicted.
    I'm predicted A*A*A (in the right subjects) but would I be at a significant disadvantage against someone who is predicted A*A*A*?

    Thanks

    I'm asking because I thought it didn't really matter what you're predicted as long as you meet the requirements (in this case A*A*A which is really high anyway), but now I want to know if the candidates would be treated the same and it ultimately comes down to their performance in the interview.

    For example, if someone performed well in the interviews (predicted A*A*A) and someone else performed decently (predicted A*A*A*) who would be more likely to get an offer?
    (assuming all other parts of their UCAS form are good)

    Ok thought you were making a joke haha

    Well, i think it would come down to other factors if your predicted grades are the same, that's all they've got afterwards to judge the difference between candidates. Interviews, personal statement and extra curricular things you've mentioned, any portfolios you bring in if that applies to your course.

    This FoI request response is pretty detailed. Take a look at the form titled "UCAS Form Grading" in particular. https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/reque...coming-1068020
