Is it too late? Watch
my predicted grades weren't the best and I wont get into the uni I want.
is too late for me to change anything I need help
Do you mean pick 5 totally different Unis and/or courses?
And please stop being rude - we are trying to help you, but unless you explain what you mean without resorting to 'ffs', no-one will bother with you.
Possibly, that's the date her sixth form wants them by. I have already applied for oxbridge deadline on October 15th but I know everyone else is expected to submit them by October half term in my sixth form, just to be early and prepared I guess? But really it's not the end of the world, some people even apply after the deadline
If u are not applying next week extra-don't stress, our school has mocks in nov/dec so talk to ur teachers and say how ur motivated to improve ur grade so can they consider ur results in next mocks/class tests. also don't be afraid to ask for extra help if you need it if you're struggling in your lessons!
if they won't budge, have another look at different unis that do the course but might have different entry requirements or, consider a different course. If ur thinking hell no I don't wanna do anything else this is 100% the course i want to do/ apply at these unis, consider a gap year. This might sound scary but it just means you've got from now until exams to sweat it out and get the grades u need, then u can apply next year as you would have done this year, there isn't any judgement from admissions.
Sorry this is long, hope it helps
