Hi! My predicted grades are AAB and I'm applying to MSci Astrophysics courses. Am I likely to get these offers? Almost all of them are above my predicted grades

Hello! It depends year to year tbh - number of applicants, quality of applicants - as well as other aspects of your application such as personal statement, references etc. Most people do select one or two aspirational choices and sometimes do get offers from them though.

Good luck!

Thank you so much! I'll try to improve my personal statement.

UCAS deadline is the 15th, right? Be sure to allow your school time to process the application and send it off too!

Making the deadline is most likely better than spending that extra bit of time on your personal statement. After the deadline, equal consideration won’t be given. I’d try and get it sent off within the working day today

I know the nerves though - I applied for my undergrad 4 years ago now. Makes me feel old :K:

I would expect you to get offers from at least 4 of those unis - no guarantees of course. The least likely one is Kings of course since they are the most competitive one. It is also possible that Kings will make you an alternative offer for their BSc course in Physics with Astrophysics instead, since you do meet the entry requirements for that course

Good luck, I’m almost nervous for you 😅

No, ended up changing course after the first year (my grades were fine, but I HATED it). Now applying for masters, sent my application in on 16th December :woo:

You can apply to BSc and then change once you're there, provided you perform well enough at uni. Having some of them be one grade lower (as they sometimes are for BSc) would give you a bit more breathing room.
