Hi so i’m in a sticky situation here. I finished Year 13 this year with my TAGs of BBC. I am currently taking a gap year and doing the autumn exams for Chemistry, Maths and Biology. I know it’s a lot but i’ve been preparing from June because i know i will be unhappy with my TAGs. I want to apply to pharmacy at UCL and Kings. UCL’s entry requirements are AAB but contextual offer is BBB which i know i will get because of my sixth form. And KCL’s entry requirements are AAB but their contextual offer is ABC, which i also think i will get because of my sixth form. So my question is that if i do get my C to a B but my BB to a worse grade in the autumn exam. Will this affect my application? Because if i do get worse grades for my current BB, i can just choose my BB from my TAGs. please someone help 😭

You list your grades, you list your resits and your school adds your predicted grades for those resits.
You are considered for offers on this basis.

If the offer says 'BBB including Maths' and the combination of grades you get/have meets this in January or whatever (obviously you can only count each subject once) then you have fulfilled the offer.

If the Uni adds a phrase such as 'from this years exams only' then you have to take that into consideration when making your Firm and Insurance choices.

Thank you for replying to my query. Unfortunately my school won’t predict me as they said that i am applying as a private candidate. And i’ve checked on their website and it says that they do accept retakes/resits. But it doesn’t say that if i do get worse results in the autumn resits, and choose my TAGs, it won’t affect my application. It just says that they accept autumn exams as first sitting.
