I am thinking of applying to a university with the entry requirements of BBC but my predicted grades are BCC.Is it worth applying even though I'm one grade short?

It does depend on the uni and the course. As general guidance i would choose 2 above BCC, 2 BCC and 1 below BBC.. that way you can guarantee a place. Remember its not just about your grades, prove yourself in your personal statement/at any interview. Some people have higher predicted and end up failing at an interview. Overall, do think wisely. Good luck!

Depends slightly according to course you’re doing. But my friends applied to ABB with BCC and she’s got an offer, I would have 2/3 aspirational unis, one safe one and then one slight above
