In answer to the original question ... if the uni specifies required grades and your predictions are lower then it would take an amazing reference/personal statement to overcome that and they may not even read them because of the grades.

Different Unis/courses put different weightings on the various aspects of an application - but as above, an amazing PS will not make up for not meeting the minimum entry requirements.
