My school has sent of my ucas application today (Friday) even though on Wednesday they said they’d hold back on sending it off as I wanted higher predicted grades.

What do I do?

My predicted grades should be AAB but I wanted higher which I why it was supposed to have been held off and I have applied to 4 AAA unis and one AAB.

Hi Peter, i think you can withdraw your application, if it is within 14 days of it being sent off. As my friend sent off her application and then decided to withdraw it and change subject. Although, you may still get offers from the unis where you are 1 grade short, as i have recieved 2 offers from unis that were above my predicteds. Hope it works out for you x

You can cancel the application. If you do this quickly ucas will refund you and you have the option to apply again. That means starting your application again from scratch.

It would be better for your school to contact your universities first to ask whether the lower predictions would be a problem and if so whether the university would accept amendments directly

It’s only one grade off It’s only really Manchester I think is probably guaranteed rejection as it for law

Get your school to contact them all on Monday and explain the situation.

Cancellation and starting from scratch is unlikely to be necessary.

When writing my personal statement, I talked about how each of my subjects at a level was good for my course. And then the subject in general, how it interested me and lastly my extra curriculars. Hope that helps.
