I was applying for accounting and finance , I got predicted grades of 3a* and 1a in as. I am wondering what could be the reason for this result.

Email admissions, they should be able to give you at least some feedback.

Universities look at more than just your grades because they realise that you are more than just a few letters and numbers. Your personal statement, reference, work experience and other relevant information will also be taken into account and considered within the pool of applicants. It could also be that due to the competition, although your application may have been good, it simply was not good enough *in comparison* to the other applicants within the same pool. Please don't rely on the merits of your predicted grades alone when applying to universities - especially as predicted grades are just that - 'a prediction'.

Do you take Maths A level. For some top universities they require it. Could possibly the university weren't happy with the predicted grades. Only the university will know. Give them a ring.

Well I have put a lot of effort into ps which contains two work experiences and it was absolutely relevant to the subject I applied for. As for the reference, my head of house told me it is very positive.

Thank you for replying, I do maths and and further mathematics and I got predicted a* on both of them. I have emailed the admissions this morning, hope they will reply me soon.

Weird. Could there have been something in the application you forgot to include? Was there meant to be an interview?

Sorry, but this is Manchester, and their predicted grades are way above what would be required.

The only explanations that I can see is that you lack an entry requirement, e.g. GCSE English, they've made a mistake, or discontinued the course. Hopefully, your feedback request will shed some light on it. Good luck.

Appealing a decision is not usually possible. The OP was just going to request feedback.

I got rejected but from Birmingham for Accounting and Finance too! predicted 3A*s as well, it annoyed me for a second but a couple of days later I got an offer from Durham for the same course.
