I’m considering offers from Newcastle, Glasgow and Sheffield and I wanted to know how likely it is they’ll let me in even if I drop a grade from my predicted grades? Newcastle has specified that I need an A in biology, which is the subject I’m least likely to get an A in - do you think it’s possible that they’d let me in even if I dropped to a B?

I asked the same question and ppl told me it relies on ur course, extra spaces on the course (clearing) and how nice the uni is.
If its competitive uni and course then chances are less.

Yes, it's always possible, but no guarantees.

It depends on how many other people fulfil their offers and therefore if there are any 'spaces'.
This cannot be guaranteed - and neither can you being picked to fill such a space.

So the best idea is to get down to some serious work (really working, not just pretending) - f you get the grades required in your offer then you have a place - it really is that simple.
