    Hi guys, I just received my AS results yesterday (I was on holiday) and I am utterly disappointed. I achieved:

    Maths - B
    Economics - D
    Music - B
    English Lit - C

    I am planning on getting my Economics mark re-marked since I am 2 off a C. I am thoroughly disappointed with my results and was wondering if it was possible if I had an opportunity to still do Psychology at University with entry requirements ranging from AAB-BBB (for example)?

    (I am planning on resitting two maths modules, for my music I may get the composition module re-marked with the whole class since all of these were marked low, and Economics and English were reformed A-levels.)

    (Also my GCSE results were 5A*s and 7As if this provides more contextual information on my position academically)

    AS results are usually around that mark. I got BBBC and recently got into Royal Holloway which asked for ABB! Use this year's disappointment as kick up the backside for next year. Start revising in September, try a variation of revision techniques and do every past paper that has ever existed. Stay positive and focus on your long term goal. Best of luck.

    P.s - I write a blog for A level students and it may be helpful if you take a look. This particular page is about Revision Technique: https://how2revise.wordpress.com/cat...ion-technique/
