I'm really sorry to hear that. Predicted or achieved, in what subjects? What course did you apply for?

You needed 4 A*s, 3 is not good enough so you should humble yourself and apply to London metropolitan

Oh. I applied for Econ at UCL this year as well, and got the offer. Predicted 4A* in Maths, FM, Econ and Physics. Could it have been your GCSE's or AS results?

Maybe their course were full. Yeah it’s unfair but that’s life. There’s other unis out there. Don’t get so hung up on the rejection.

Bare in mind economcs at UCL is with no doubt one of the most competitive course so another aspect of your application might have let you down

Then they should have put their entry requirements up to 4A*

What I don’t understand is I worked my ass off, chose to live alone and not see my family for years to get the best grades and If success is not determining their decisions what is in this country

Your grades are excellent and are obviously not the problem. Something else must have discouraged them from taking you (ps? reference?) Try to get feedback and work on that. Don't give up and try again next year if you really like UCL!

Universities look at more than your grades. Did you ask for specific feedback? It sounds to me as if your PS was lacking - what extra curriculars do you have?
