    I received my AS results and got BCC in English language, English literature and psychology respectively. I'm not going to moan and say I'm disappointed - okay I would've liked a lot better, but I achieved my predicted grades plus I thought I'd fail!

    Anyway my universities want at least 3 B's, I can get into Southampton university doing an English language and linguistics degree with three B's. Is getting these grades or higher achievable? If so, how do I go about doing this?

    I would like ABB to get into Newcastle but don't know if it's possible to be honest.

    Thanks for your help

    For psychology I made massive posters and anagrams to remember main points and for English I wrote essays and pestered my teachers to mark them

    I thought I'd mess up AS, what grades did you get?
