Currently in year 13 and Predicted an AAB (I think I may be able to persuade my teacher to bump my B to an A due to just getting an A in their mock). This may not work, One of the courses I plan to apply for is Politics with Economics at the University of Bath with Entry Requirements of AAA or A*AB. My question is whether I should even include it in my one of my 5 choices or just leave it out?

Any advice would be greatly apricated.

1. If you don't apply vtou have zero chance of getting an offer.

2. The objective is to get 2+ offers that you like, not to get all 5 offers.

Apply.
One or two 'above' choices is always worthwhile - if you dont apply you'll always wonder what might have happened if only you had.

Definitely apply. If you get five offers back you probably weren’t aiming high enough.

I agree you should go for it as long as you meet any specific subject requirement. For Economics most places have a Mths requirement. If you dont meet it the it is a likely rejection.

A relative applied for two universities last year with a predicted grade with one grade below the requirement and got offers (at the required grade level).

As long as it’s not your only choice you might get an offer it can’t hurt to try but don’t over shoot and do all 5 of your choices like that and please make sure you like your first and insurance so many people seem to change their mind when they don’t get their first choice because they don’t like their insurance it’s stupid. Why apply if you don’t like the place. Good Luck
