I've been accepted by UCL and KCL and rejected by Durham, LSE and Oxford. I asked Durham for feedback on my application and two days ago I got an email from them saying that there were no predicted grades on my application (I had also gotten an email from LSE before, saying they couldn't find my predicted grades either). I just checked my UCAS application and found that there are actually no predicted grades, so I called UCAS and they said they couldn't find them either (although I am sure I put them in). Now I'm just confused as to how I get accepted to UCL and Kings when my predicted grades are not there?

How did you put in the predicted grades as a student?

You referee might have included them in their reference, it's easy to miss though so some Uni's will not pick up on them.

Some Uni's will make a standard offer to all applicants who are taking the essential subjects for the course. I'd be very surprised if UCL and KCL do this though.

You should contact your coordinator and ask them to email all the universities and UCAS as soon as possible and make necessary amendments.

you shouldn't be able to see your predicted grades because they go in the reference which isn't visible to you

unless im greatly mistaken there's no predicted grades section on the ucas applicant application section; just sections for achieved grades and exams yet to be taken

Thanks! I didn't enter any of my previous grades as I did MYP (a kind of IB version of GCSEs) and the unis didn't say it was necessary to enter those.

Wow i'd be so mad with my referee. At least you got UCL and KCL otherwise could have been a disastrous mistake. It's a bit late to tell the unis now I guess; congrats though, must have had a banging personal statement

Predicted grades are dumb and I think universities should not trust schools to give anything accurate (especially oxbridge, why do they have interviews then?!). Take my case (although these were for sixth from applications):

My school when I did GCSE boycotted my applications to all good A level schools by putting predicted grades MUCH LOWER than what I would actually get (I got 5A* 4A and a C in literature despite the awful teaching). That school has the IB diploma in sixth form (I think now all the years are IB), which I didn't want to do because I would fail IB English SL (even lang and lit), although I got A* in english language GCSE. I simply despise literature so much that it would ruin my application to study math at top unis (which is ridicoulous). and further math was not available (as well as being forced to do stats in those anyway, while I would rather take more pure or mechanics). In the end, just to have a slim shot for top unis, I decided to self-study A levels math FM, and physics, as all the good schools were full by results day...

A bad referee makes all the difference because of the idiotic predicted grade thing...

What are your predicted grades? Your application must have been really good if they accepted it anyway!

I don't remember there being a section on the UCAS application where you have to fill in your predicted grades. My tutors mentioned my predicted grades on my reference. So I think it's just the case that you were very fortunate with UCL and KCL.
