    Yesterday was results day and I got ABE IN MY AS RESULTS. Now the subject I got an E in was a subject that I did well in through out the year and I think I didn't made it clear which questions I was doing as you had to shade a box and I kept on changing my mind. My fear is that the examiners couldn't tell which section I was doing, however I am getting my paper remarked. The good thing is that it is a linear A level and it doesn't count towards my final grade. However the university that I plan on applying to has a grade requirement of ABB. Do you think I still have a chance.

    read this you'll feel more confident!


    No I got rejected for ABB courses and I got ABC
    (Ignore me if you are talking about AS LEVELS as I turned my AS grades of BCD into ABC by the end)

    Yeah I was talking about AS levels

    Of course you can apply. You might not get an offer though.*
