i have a teacher who's very flexible w the predicted uni grade he can give me, i could ask him for a d*d*d, possibly a d*d*d*, right now its d*dd but i'm scared that if i apply to unis w a higher predicted grade they might me expect me to get that specific grade or increase the offer they give me, lets say i dont do so well in the jan exam or something unexpected happens.. will this just make it easier for me to get the place that i want...? is this the safer option or just being dumb

You can speak with your teacher, but what grades are needed for your course?

Hello

I think it would be wise to seek what grades you need for the course you are looking at doing and then speak to your teachers about this. Don't forget you can also have an insurance option to give you some peace of mind. There are also clearance options, so if you do get the grades you wanted, but didn't think you'd achieve them, you can phone up uni's and they may offer you a place that way. Likewise, if you don't get the grades you were hoping for then you can also go through clearance. Either way, i would clarify with your teachers about your predicted grades.

Hope this helps!

Unis will not raise grade offers because you have higher BTEC predictions than they are asking for.
