Predicted grades missing from application watch

    • Thread Starter

    I sent of my application last Tuesday, but a few days later, after speaking to my form tutor, it turns out he had attached my reference but not my predicted grades.

    Will this have an adverse affect on how unis view my application? My predicted grades were more or less what I achieved at AS level (AAB) so I'm not too hung up about unis not "realising my full potential," I'm just more worried about them not having enough information for making an offer.

    I guess I have two options now - phone UCAS and have them send my application back (if this is possible) or just wait and see what happens. I'm more inclined to go for the latter option unless predicted grades are that much of a big deal.

    Thanks in advance.

    Predicted Grades are a big deal yes but at the same time one has to presume taht your reference contained them anyhows, frankly the unis will probs understand that a mistake has been made and will presume your predicted grades to be equivalent to what you got last year or may well enquire with your school, at the end of the day it certainly is not your fault and well everything I have given here is but my opinion but you really want someone like River85 to cast his eye over this one

    predicted grades are important dude, is your form tutor a jackass or something?

    theres no harm in getting ucas to send it back and send them back again WITH the predicteds in it... much better than risking it if you ask me

    It's the first time he's doing UCAS. To be fair I blame the school more than my form tutor because it's obvious that the teachers haven't received adequate training, if any, to use the UCAS system.

    Any more replies will be more than welcome, particularly those who know about admissions.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
