I'm currently studying AS English Literature, History, and Psychology, whilst considering my university options, and am concerned with my chances of getting into a good uni.
I achieved 1 A (History) 4 B's (English Lit, English Lang, RS and Business Studies) and 4 Cs (Core + Additional Science, Maths, Drama), I believe I could have achieved better, had I seen school with more importance when beginning studying for GCSEs, considering at the time of year 9/10 I was going through issues with depression due to bullying and home issues which I believe had an impact on my perspective of school at the time. I hadn't taken GCSEs seriously until year 11 when exams were looming, so I think considering my circumstances I did okay ...
Now doing my AS levels, I am achieving B's in all my subjects and take my education a lot more seriously and have a lot more ambition and determination than I did 4/5 years ago. I am aiming to achieve AAB-ABB in my A Levels and would love to study a degree in History/Politics/Law, at one of the following unis: Southampton, Queen Mary's, Birmingham, Exeter, Kent, Reading, Royal Holloway, Loughborough, Portsmouth.
I actively contribute to the History subject area at my college as AS Modern History Subject Representative for my year and attending History and Politics societies weekly and have a lot of enthusiasm towards topics regarding History/Politics/Law.
Do my ambitions to study at the universities I've listed sound realistic based on my background?
What can help me to gain a place at a good university to study History?
How much do universities actually consider your GCSEs?
