That’s not how it works. Your predictions have no connection to the grades in your offers.

In theory, the higher your predictions, the more likely you are to receive an offer. However, there’s no point being predicted higher than you can realistically achieve, as you may end up without a place on results day.

I can’t answer that because I don’t know how accurate your initial predictions were.

Your predictions should be as accurate as possible. That’s why teachers assess them and not students. If your not sure, talk to your teachers. Again, there’s no point asking for high predictions, getting offers and then not meeting the conditions.

Predicted grades aren’t used as the basis of offer conditions.

If you’re successful in getting an offer, it doesn’t matter whether you were predicted A*A*A* or CCC, you’ll still receive either the standard offer for the course or possibly a reduced (contextual) one.

The OP was asking if lower predictions would mean a more lenient (ie. lower) offer requirement. They wouldn’t.

Avoid Queen Mary’s like the plague. Their life science department is awful, the staff are rude to your face, and they don’t run exams fairly (there is a lot of cheating).

oh my bad i misread the OP's question. i thought they were wondering if they can apply to courses where the requirements are lower than what theyre predicted.

Abbie777 sorry about that, don't bother with lowering your predicted grades as theres no point. the higher your predicted grades the more likely you will be to get offers. courses won't lower the requirements just for you just because your grades arre lower they'll usually go with the standard offer, or contextual if ur eligible. hope this helps!
