Hello, I just got my predicted grades and I was predicted ABB, however, I want to apply to Southampton, Durham, Exeter and two others. The three which I listed want AAA - AAB. Will they still send me an offer even though my predicted grades are low. Thanks for your help. The other two are AAB - BBB

It really depends on the course in question.
But you would certainly expect an offer for AAB.

You could have one or maybe two 'reach' choices but I really wouldn't recommend 5 as you have listed here.

It is risky and depends on how competitive the course is. Ask admissions. It could work out but don't be surprised if you get three rejections. Personally I applied for two AAB courses with AAD predicted, got an offer from one got rejected by the other, I got an ABB offer as well.

This is a very sensible approach with a prediction of ABB.

To be honest I think you could even have two ABB options, (unless the BBB one is a uni/course you are specifically keen on), as ABB course are quite likely to accept dropped grades at results time and BBB courses are more likely to be available in clearing.

Okay, that sounds good.

Is there no way you can get predicted AAB? You don’t have to send it for another 6 months. I’m sure you can prove urself in that time
