My predicted grades are BBC but I'm applying to lincoln to do biomedical science, they require BBB. Do you think they would consider my offer?

Arabic :A*
Chemistry :C
Biology :B
Math :B

I would really like to apply to lincoln but I'm not sure if they will accept my offer .
If you think they won't accept my offer is their any other uni which accept lower grades ?
I would appreciate it if anyone can recommend an alternative options (except taking a gap year).

I think it's reasonable to apply to a couple of courses with slightly higher than your predicted grades - having one or two "aspirational" choices on your UCAS application is a good idea. Note that if you do get made an offer, it's very likely it will be for the standard requirement (BBB in this case) so you would need to work to bring up the C grade in your final exams. But yes, that should be fine and is a sensible approach.

Hi,

Your school will likely tell the Uni what they want to hear, and that is that you are on track to meet entry requirements - they don't want to mug you off because you're a grade short. Worst case scenario, they don't! Uni lecturers will look at your predicted grades, and make a decision on whether to offer you a place or not (depends on how many places they are able to fill) - because you're just a grade short I wouldn't be surprised if they offered you a place. Make sure your personal statement is really good, and that you have a good reference to better your chances.

Good Luck.

Ideally this is what your five university course choices should look like :
1 or 2 'risky' choices - just above your predicted grades (ie. AAA requirements with AAB predictions)
2 or 3 - at your predicted grades
1 or 2 - below your predicted grade

More advice here:

PS. Drop Chemistry - it could make the difference you need to 'up' the other grades.
Remember, AAA will laways look better than ABBB.
