    I sent off my application 13 days ago and have only just realised that I put in the wrong course code for one university.

    However, I have applied for a course that is AMAZING and I would love to do, at a uni (Manchester) that I would really like to go to.
    But the grades are A,A,A and I'm only predicted A,A,B...

    I already have two offers from Uni's that are my first and second choice

    Should I substitute for another Uni, which I am likely to get into or just stick with Machester even though it is unlikely I will get in..
    Has anyone ever got in with grades lower than the required grades?


    My sister got into Cardiff to study Psychology with ABB when the requirements were AAA; she didn't know that she'd had an unconditional offer based on her personal statement and her glowing references.

    It happens, but don't count on it too much. If you've already received offers from your first and second choice, I would keep the good course at Manchester as one of your choices. It's not a big waste, and the other course at Manchester you meant to apply for doesn't sound like it'd have been either your first or second choice anyway, so what's the harm? You might be pleasantly surprised to get an offer.
