    I have got 9A*-A at my GCSEs as follows:
    Maths- A*
    English Lit- A*
    English Language- A
    RE- A*
    Core Science- A
    Science Additional- A
    French- A
    Geography- A
    Art- A
    Product Design- B
    Another maths qualification (FSMQ)- B

    And for AS I'm studying psychology, maths, geography and product design. At my worst I'll get BBCC and best AABC. In our school that means predicted grades would be A*A*AB-AABB

    So should I apply to Durham in 2017 with grades like this? I really like the course and it would be my top choice.

    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like you're doing really well already, and Durham is a great Uni, so if you visit it, and it feels right you should definitely apply. I know Durham are one of the universities who aren't so flexible if you don't make the grades, but if you're hitting the marks then theres no reason not to

    If you do well in AS. AABC is still quite low for Durham given their offer is at least AAA.
