    Ofcourse it's elsewhere on application. You have to include your AS grades in the UCAS form. But, like i said earlier, I have been reading a lot of posts (on TSR) and many people say that Unis just consider your predicted grades. I achieved AAB. I am confident I am going to get AAB, if not higher, and plan on applying to AAB Unis. If i'm predicted ABB, then it's holding me back. So, I still want an answer. I don't want someone telling me that i'm shouting because I chose to make my post bold, which was just to get people to notice it.
    You've had an answer. It is a bad idea to repeat things that are elsewhere on the application; it demonstrates to admissions tutors that you cannot make sensible judgements about priorities.

    And to the oh pea, I wouldn't worry too much. Someone at my school got BBC for AS (although these weren't certificated), BBC predicted and a BBB offer from York.

    I have They don't seem to want to budge. We've even gone as far as to make an appointment with the headmaster... I know it may seem extreme, but it's not like im asking to be predicted a grade higher than what I achieved, I just want the grade that I deserve and am confident that I will achieve.

    I dont exactly know, I didn't ask him that many questions. But I quite positive that he did get higher A2 marks since he said he didnt gained many marks from his resits.

    I'm sorry OP (i feel like I'm ruining/hijacking your thread) but the guy keeps asking me question lol.

    Anyway good luck with getting predicted AAB, and well done on your AS results!! wish I had as good as results as you had lol.

    Helicopter parents anyone? :rolleyes:

    Op, the most mature response is to discuss it with your year head on your own (hence reflecting responsibility and independence).


    1. Are the people in your year putting their grades on their ucas form?
    2. Do you have a lot of experience in the area you wish to procure a course in?
    3. Is your personal statement amazing?
    4. How many resits are you taking?

    Explain your determination to attain your grades or higher and say you will do x,y and z to show this. Explain module marks and look for their reasoning about why they are predicting you lower grades, it may be school policy or a trend.

    However, otherwise don't worry lots of people I know got offers above their predicted grades. :yep:

    Actually, I asked my parents to get involved as I could see that I was getting no where with the teachers and head of sixth form - they just kept shrugging me off. It is already bloody late, and i've been trying to talk and reason with them for a long time.

    1. You say "putting their grades up".. Do you mean if they are posting their AS grades on their UCAS forms? Yeah, we are.
    2. I plan on studying business mangement. I've had work experience, but just for about a week, which is compulsary in our school. I live in Dubai, where you can't really get a job until you're over 21.
    3. I think it's pretty good so far.
    4. I'm doing 2 resits in January. One in Geography (the subject i'm trying to get predicted higher in) even though i've already got an A... I want a higher A. And one in English, because I got a D, which brought my grade WAY down. I got a full A in the May exam, so if it wasn't for that AWFUL D then I would have an A in this too. Im 4 marks off an A.

    Like I said, a lot of people say that the Unis don't even look at AS grades, and just look at predicted grades.
    since you've scored higher than predicted, why would they want to take something predicted yet what's in reality has clearly been stated. I'm very sure that they are going to look at your AS grades. I've asked my lecturers the exact same questions and some professors from universities too:yep:

    Hopefully... It'l just be SO depressing if I get rejected from my top choices (will are going to be AAB) because of my predicted grades.
