I don’t see any reason why not as long as the rest of ur application is fine. That’s a great set of predicted grades.

Do you mind stating your GCSEs? If not then please do so, so that I may judge this question better.

Amazin, you did really well! I have no doubt you will get offers. Have you considered perhaps applyin to some more distinguished universities? It may be that you like the courses at the universities you have chosen so if it is, I totally understand.

Why won't you get all 5 offers?

Offer rate calculator gives >90% for all of those courses. It's therefore virtually impossible that you won't get an offer from all 5. Apart from at the very top, it generally is not hard to get offers from universities at undergrad given you have the requisite grades. Meeting them however might not be so simple.

These grades are amazing. You should definitely think of applying to a more competitive uni. You stand a good chance of getting in. Good luck.

LMAO get rid of that anxiety now because you've definitely got places. I'd be surprised if you didn't get all 5 offers.

i almost applied to cambridge but i decided a more prestigious uni isnt right for me, i think the application process would be too hard and i really cant see myself getting in, also i just don’t think i would fit in somewhere like that

Maybe looking at better uni ranking for physics. Like maybe u shouldve tried imperial cos like they are top ten and plus they r in london btw idk where ur from and if u wanna live out. But with those grades i think u should get all offers cos my mate has similar grades and he wants to do computer science and has already got a few offers. I hope that gives u a bit more confidence aha.

Well do have a look at University of Bath and University College London - they have good reputations for sciences.

I think it's good that you didn't choose your universities based on "league tables". Pick somewhere you know you will be comfortable and enjoy the course AND will not feel swamped by the work.

Very well done! I hope I have the privilege of speakin to you again in the future.

Kent will probably fall of their chair when they see your application

As above, it makes sense to only apply to places that you like and would be happy to attend for 3-4yrs, but I would recommend that you include one or two more aspirational places. You are shooting very low with those predictions.

You never know, you might fall for somewhere else after attending an offer holder open day.

Aren't Nottingham / Liverpool / Leeds pretty good unis though? Especially Liv / Leeds. (Basing this on what I saw for my undergrad, might be different for this course - just curious as to why everyone things this is aiming low!)

They r really good unis but applying to another top uni that's even better (ranked better) than these by dropping Kent or Sheffield wouldn't hurt as the OP has good predicted grades. Just trying to encourage them to aim higher as they probably can achieve it.
