    I'm having a load of trouble getting my application sent off and its, quite frankly, taking the piss. To cut a long story short, does UCAS/ or any universities actually require you as an obligation to have predicted grades on your Ucas app?

    To explain in more detail, read here:

    I have applied through my school although I'm now an almost 'mature' student. They tell me I need to give them predicted grades for an A2 subject I wish to resit next May/ June and another A level I will be fast-track sitting this Jan coming for AS and Next may for the A2 part of it. Now, if I have an AS and A2 grade for my first A level mentioned and it says on UCAS I am resitting it at a centre where I have never studied, do I really need a predicted grade? The centre cannot give me one as I am literally just going to be sitting the exam it there, no lessons or anything. However my subject teachers from my old school could give me a grade yet the school office cant be bothered to ask! As for my second A level mentioned above which I am taking for the first time as fast-track this year coming, my teacher has only known me since Septemeber so I think it will be hard for her to give a predicted grade for the whole A level even though all I have at the moment is a GCSE in it. I've tried calling UCAS but there are closed for some unknown reason today. Please help!

    Do I just give it to my school myself or do they have to see that its been approved by a teacher or whatnot? Answer this and you get ur rep! Ochen Spasibo!

    I don't understand the long version of the story but yes, universities will require predicted grades from you.
