My progress checks are in October and my mocks are in November so I still have time! Though, my plan is to submit my ps as early as possible so that they can send off my application early as possible so that if my teachers were to try to downgrade me in terms of predictions, I would still have good predicted grades sent on UCAS - I'm assuming they're unchangeable, right? 😬

I've no idea Although if the progress checks caused the teacher to downgrade pg, what happens to ppl who have early deadline due to Oxbridge, medicine, etc ?

Change of plans I guess. Plan B always comes in handy.

Depends on when in October though. Also depends on what Plan B consists of - maybe no more Oxbridge, Medicine, etc. Or maybe, a new course or a new university or both.
