Should I risk getting rejected and apply to uni with inadequate predicted grades? Watch
I talked to my teachers (once even with my parents) and they said that they are not going to raise my predicted grades - I completely understand that they know better and have more experience so I'm not going to beg them to change my grades - the only thing I can do is to prove them wrong and get the required AAA in summer.
What would be the best thing to do? Should I apply to uni this year and risk rejection or should I apply after I get my actual results?
If you’re already expecting a gap year then it’s a good idea to apply this year. Think of it as a practice run - if you get offers then that’s a bonus. If you don’t get any offers then you have a better understanding of how ucas works when you apply in your gap year with less support from your school.
Would getting rejected affect my chances of getting in when I reapply next year?
Plus if you don’t get any offers and then get the grades in August 2020 then you’ll be able to apply in clearing too if there’s spaces at the universities you’re interested in.
Someone predicted BBB can still apply to AAA unis but due to the chance of being rejected, should also apply to AAB/ABB/ BBB unis too.
