Predicted Grades, Mock Grades, Actual Final Grades

If your applying for a course at UCL or any Russell group uni (but mainly UCL) and predicted grades don’t meet the requirements or your mock grades don’t meet the requirements but your actual grades on results day meet the requirements can you still get into the uni?
I’ve heard that predicted grades and mock grades are equal to actual results day grades is that true?

Predicted grades are just that - a prediction. Similarly mock grades are the grades you got in you mock exams. Both if these sets of grades are separate from your actual grades. The statement that "predicted grades and mock grades are equal to actual results day grades" is nonsense. They might be the same. They might be different. If they were always guaranteed to be the same, then why bother with the actual exams?

If your predicted grades don't meet the requirements then you may not get an offer. If you don't get an offer then your actual grades are irrelevant (unless you manage to squeeze in via Clearing, with is unlikely for popular courses at popular universities).

And equally: if your actual grades don't live up to your predicted grades, there's a strong chance you won't get in, especially if the course and uni is popular.

You MAY get an offer even if your predicted grades are below the university's "requirements". But getting an offer is not the same thing as "getting in".

Really no there is no way in which predicted and mock grades are equal to actual grades.
