Warwick make offers to a very large proportion of applicants. They pretty much just let A levels do the filtering. I can't find the statistics for that particular course, but expect the offer rate to be about 90%.

I got an EPP offer for A*AA so you should be good. Especially if you get 2 A*s instead of only the one required.

9, but I can hardly imagine GCSE grades make a big difference if your A Level grades are great

Do you think it will be okay if I match the entry of A* A A or would I have to get A* A* A?

I really can't tell you that since it's on case by case basis. You have your predicted grades already, apply for it and if you don't get in you don't get in! Try your hardest to get the A level grades since that's all you can do now.

if you don't meet the minimum requirements listed for GCSEs don't you automatically get rejected? OP is applying withy predicted A-level grades not achieved ones.

This isn't necessarily true for all courses; it's widely known to be the case for their flagship maths course, but that's because they require STEP for that and many fail to achieve the STEP condition of their offer. It may not be the case for other courses they offer which they don't require STEP.

It's just that getting a 6 in GCSE and not a 7 is such a small and minute detail and if they were able to overachieve their A-level grade it could definitely be overlooked. Admissions managers aren't robots, they're humans who understand and can compromise. Regardless it's still worth applying.

i agree re: overachieving with actual grades, idk about predictions since most others will have them too.
