I don't really understand how the choices system works, I got BCC but I am 100% certain I will get AAA for my actual exam. I want to apply for Universities with AAA to ABB range since they are out of my Predicted grade range am I not allowed to do that or will it be instantly rejected by UCAS. New to all this sorry thanks!!

UCAS lets you apply to any 5 choices you like, it would be the university's decision to reject you.

Some Universities could reject you even if you do get the grades (its all a bit confusing) however ask your teachers about changing your predicted grades. By getting a conditional offer, it means you'll still have to meet or achieve those grades to get your place and if you don't, you do get lose it. I suggest applying for a mix of universities (that's what i'm doing anyways) some have grades of ABB and some BBC/BCC, just so if i get rejected to any i can fall back on those BBC unis

What makes you say that you're certain you will get AAA in your final exams?

So they can reject me without offering me a conditional place??? If so is there any point of me applying for AAA unis then with BCC.

You can work during your gap year and yes you could find something in clearing with BCC

There is Adjustment as well as Clearing, where you can apply to other unis if you get better grades than those required by your Firm choice uni.

The good thing about Adjustment over Clearing is that you don't have to give up the offer you have before you can apply to other unis.

I want to do Chemicalk Engineering, I have BCC predicted grades, I want to go to Uni of Nottingham, Sheffield or Birmingham or Manchester backup Bradford, be plain and honest with me please because I don't want to end up with 5 rejections, what are my chances of getting conditional offers, I have a very good personal statement, becuase I have done multiple Online courses related to Engineering some examples Aerospace with MIT, Energy and Environmental Costrainsts with Harvard, Nuclear Engineering with the OU and have gotten a week of shadowing with an engineer
and have shown real interest in the subject via outside of school learning. I really wanted to do well for my FUPG's and get AAA but not an option anymore, so I need some real honest opinions about if I even stand a chance. If I get rejected by all of my options what can I do, will I not be able to go to university or do I wait for clearing to find a course through there, and what are the chances any good universities for chem eng will be on the options for clearing. Suppose I do get aaa or more can I ring up my universities that rejected me and ask if I can join?? Those are all my questions I think. Thanks to anyone in advance who can give me a thorough and detailed response!!!

You are likely to get an offer from Bradford but not very likely with the others because your predicted grades are way off their requirements. If it's not too late I would do some substitutions such as Aston instead of Birmingham.

If it is too late to make changes to your UCAS then in all honesty I would expect some rejections but Bradford is a good backup. And there is always Clearing when more unis will have vacancies
