    Hello people of TSR, I know that this question has probably been asked a billion times but after getting my AS grades they were not to great.

    B - Spanish (WJEC old spec)
    D - Computing (OCR new spec)
    D - Maths - (Edexcel old spec)
    D - Business (Edexcel new spec)

    I have dropped business, and I am going to retake the AS maths modules. Sadly computing I can not do the same as it a new spec. The goal is to peruse a combined degree at exeter or liverpool with computing,spanish and mandarin. Will these kinda unis even look at my UCAS ? What are your thoughts?

    Many thanks for your time reading this and I appreciate every bit of advice even if I am unable to reply to them

    It all really depends on your predicted grades and how well you do for A2, I myself got BBD in As and managed for A2 this year to get ABB and got accepted into a Russel group university. Just set your mind to it and you will what you want. Just ask your self did you really try that hard for AS?
