I just got my AS results and they were awful! I got a C in Biology, C in English Literature and a U in chemistry. I know I can do a lot better, but I had massive home problems and missed about 50% of the school year. I was wondering if anyone got similar grades to me but still managed to get an offer? My GCSE's are AABBBBBC and the University course I'm hoping for is Biology with typical requirements of ABB/BBB. Is it appropriate to brief on how the AS results were disappointing because of what happened in my life in the personal statement? I wouldn't think it is, but I don't want to lose the chance to go because of the grades this year when I know I can bring them up.
