    I received my AS results on Thursday - I got BBC (RE, French and Spanish respectively). I was happy with the two Bs, however I was shocked with Spanish - I got an A in my mock, and I've been getting As all year. Does anyone have any advice as to where to go from here? My dad has basically told me I have no chance of getting into a good uni, so I better sort my life out now. Thanks in advance.

    No, you do have a chance. these exams are linear now and perhaps your grades will motivate you to work even harder or just to do some extra work, theres no way you're completely done for. You can do well in your christmas mocks (if you get those) and then ask for predictions more realistic to what you achieved. Don't feel disheartened, there are many people who wish they had your grades right now. Hope i helped.

    Spanish wasn't linear this year but the advice remains the same can still do awesome and you always hav a chance. If you really want to up your grade mayb resit something next year or something

    Yeah, with history I got a C, despite receiving A's all year, and I've found out it was the same for a lot of people with various subjects. There is definitely still hope; after being upset for a while with my results, I realised this is motivation to work even harder next year. Your results are still great, and with good results means your predicted grades will probably be higher, which is what unis look at (apparently) anyway!

    Consider getting a copy of the scripts back for the written exam - it might be worth a re-mark and even if it isn't you can see where you went wrong under pressure. Consider re-sitting one or both of the units next year. Language AS units are much easier if you take them after studying for a further year and you could well pull your AS grade up to an A, making it much easier to do well in the overall A level.

    Thank you all for your advice - I did work hard this year, but I think it's back to the drawing board with regards to my study techniques. I'm preparing for a wad of resits, too!
