Hi everyone, I worked really hard at A level and wanted AAAC but instead achieved 4Bs(ridiculously shocked at the B in English which I expected a C at best after Ds all year). Now 3 out 4 of these Bs were a few ums off an A so maybe 1 or 2 marks so around 79%. I dropped English Literature because I hated it and kept History, Geography and Politics. I wanted to study politics at University and have loads of activism I've participated in to put on my personal statement.
I achieved 1A*7As and 2Bs at GCSE with minimal effort and it is so annoying that I can't say "I should of tried harder" in this case as I was burnt out after my exams and did everything you can imagine to prepare.
I really want to apply for top/competitive universities such as Durham and Warwick (3As) is this a dream or can it be done I have back ups with lower requirements but I don't want to settle :'(. Only politics and geography are old spec History is linear, not sure if I should resit them to be honest but I don't think I want to risk losing focus on my A2. *sorry for the long post*
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
