Look at courses with foundation years as they generally have lower offers but still allow you to take the same course.

you could ask your teachers to boost your predicted grades (might have to show proof that you'll work hard and one day achieve those grades), or you could look at unis that have very low requirements, (ones that look at ucas points rather than grades seem to have lower requirement?), or you could apply for a foundation year somewhere!

It is far from hopeless. I know someone who had 5 offers with BCD this year for a Geography course. What course is it for and why on earth did you take 4 A levels.

You may get offers for places with low entry requirements regardless of your predictions, (not everywhere even uses them). You just need to be sensible with your choices.

I would ask why you are taking four subjects. In the majority of cases you'd be better focusing on three. Even BCC would be a better profile than BCDE.

These are good predicted grades, don't be too hard on yourself! Studying 4 A levels I would suspect is very hard to do. There are many universities out there who would accept you on these predicted grades, including USW. Let me know which courses you are interested in studying, and I will send you some links to suitable courses. You have plenty of time to apply, the deadline isn't until 15th January 2021. I would be happy to help you with your personal statement if this helps? At our university, we don't just look at your predicted grades for certain courses, so don't panic! Rebecca

Why are you doing 4 subjects?
Drop one, or even two. Concentrate on getting decent grades with the other subjects.
A level grades that low will not get you into Uni. You might like to look at an apprenticeship instead.

4 a levels could be down to your preference, and that’s understandable.

But for the sake of your grades, I’d highly advise you drop one to focus on the initial three, maybe drop the subject you got an E in?
It’s not worth it

I think DeMont gave me an offer in tariff points which I missed, (I still have the paperwork somewhere, yes, that's right, my paper UCAS application). I got in with CDE but was lucky as it was a new course and presumably undersubscribed

That isnt true. It might not get OP into Bristol or similar but it will get you into many universities. As an example UWTSD requires 88 points for Accountancy and 80 points for Sociology. University of South Wales are accepting BCC-CCD for Geography. A guy on here got 5 offers with actual BCD for Geography including Cardiff, Leicester and Swansea all of whom were showing far higher entry requirements.

If it was me, I'd drop the subject you're getting the E in and use the extra time to try and bump the D up to a C. Plenty of Universities accept low grades - Chester, Liverpool Hope, Trinity St Davids, Glyndwr etc

I'm pretty sure some uni foundation courses only require 2 A levels - maybe research those?

I'd personally recommending dropping the 'E' subject and then trying to get that D up to a C - BCC is easier to apply with

You may have to do a bit of searching around but certainly don't put yourself down. Many unis accept students with lower than the requested grades. Personally I wouldn't bother with 4 subjects. Unis are only really interested in 3 A levels unless it is science related and you are doing Further Maths. Why don't you concentrate on 3 A levels. Or is it an EPQ?

BCD isn't bad - forget the E, I would drop the E.

You could get offers from lots of unis as long as you are realisic
