I'm worried that my predicted grades (A few from teachers who have only known me for a matter of weeks! - That can't be right, surely?) will mean I'll get outright rejections from the unis I want to go to (Newcastle, Cardiff, UEA, Sheffield). I am really confident I'll get the grades to go to the above in the end, but I'm not sure my application will be seen in a good light, despite the allegedly "well-written" personal statement.

I've already been at college for a year more than I hoped I would (Due to an unforseen tragedy) so a fourth year is not an option. I can't wait to get out of here, the town has gone stale for me.

My advice is to apply anyway. Uni's might consider you anyway, and if you give a good impression at your interview, who knows! That's what I'm doing.

You might get offers from uni's with lower grades than you think you can get, but if you don't get offers, you can always ring uni's on the day you get your results, and fax them your results. If they are good, and they're the right grades for the course, you could get an offer that way. It works, believe me. I know a guy who got to study vet/sci at Bristol that way.

If that doesn't work, then I agree with the other guy, you could get in through clearing (a lot of people do), or take a gap year.

Good luck, hope this helps!

I'm in the same boat. I've been predicted BBC but sure I can do much better than that. The thing is I need ABC or BBB at least to study the course I want. I really hope that my personal statement/reference (which my tutor says are very good,) will get me there!Doubt it though!
