Predicated grades on UCAS

What happens if you don’t put any predicated grades on your UCAS application?

That would depend on why you have no predicted grades.

If you're resitting A levels, and are doing so independently (no school / college / tutor) then unis are well aware that it'll be challenging to get updated predictions and will probably make assumptions about your likely grades based upon your original grades and the extra year of study.

Similarly, if you're home-schooled, with no tutor, then even if you're not a resit candidate, they might be willing to accept the lack of predicted grades.

However, if you're attending school / college and there are no predictions accompanying your application, that will look very strange indeed. They may well be unwilling to make an offer under these circumstances.

By the way, just to clarify, you don't provide predicted grades anyway. Your referee does.

OK. If you're in your foundation year, then you don't need predicted grades (for your A levels, etc.) as you have actual grades. Your foundation year isn't (generally speaking) something which will of value / interest to other unis. They will look at your A level / BTEC / etc. results.
Just confirm by reply that that your current uni has said they can’t provide predictions.

Yes they have said they can’t provide me with predictions as I have not done many summative assessments

So it’s okay I have no predicated grades? Because I am on a science foundation year but I didn’t do any STEM A levels

Yes, that’s pretty normal for someone doing a Foundation Year. All you can do is advise the unis you’re applying to and see what they say. They should be able to consider you regardless, (assuming they accept that FY).

Thank you and yes I’ve checked whether they accept the foundation year

In that case they should be dealing with a few people in the same position every year.
