    I live in New Zealand and it's quite hard when the only information you get about UCAS is off the internet, so my question may seem quite obvious, sorry!

    When i apply i won't have any of my results from this year yet (as a lot of people i imagine), so does the university wait until i get those marks or do they make a decision on my marks from the previous year?

    I've heard something about predicting grades? Does this mean that when i apply through UCAS i have to write those in? Or is this done by my school/teachers?

    I would appreciate if someone explained it to me


    I wont be applying to university until next year, but from what I know, your school/teachers are the ones who decide on your predicted grades and you have to submit them with your UCAS form. If you need more info, take a look at the link below:


    Good luck!

    You will put the qualifications you're taking, along with the time you expect to get your results, onto the UCAS form and list the result as "pending". Your teachers can then provide predicted grades for you in your reference.
