    Hello,
    I wish to take theology and religion at the University of Durham which requires AAB at A Level. II take Classics, RS and Computers in which I have obtained at AS Level AAC. I will be resisting the C to try and get a B or higher. But are these good enough? Not just grade but the subjects I am taking?
    Also I have obtained 7As 2Bs and 1C at GCSE are these good enough for Durham? Even though the C is in English Language?
    What I do know is that I am good at interviews, confident and do a lot of extra curricular activities and volunteering etc.
    Just wondering what my chances are for getting an offer?

    Thank you

    Hello, sorry for posting here but I didn't get a response on the big thread so ...

    I was thinking about doing geography at Durham, I like the course content and the collegiate aspect to it as well.For my GCSE, I achieved A*,A, 3 B's and 3 C's. I know there not the best and it worries me. For my AS level results (AAABC), I got A in Business Studies, A in Religious Studies, A in Geography, B in History and finally a C in General studies (not that anyone cares about that ). My predicted grades are A*AA

    Side note if anyone does geography at Durham I'd love to chat. Also again thank you for reading this far !

    Do not worry about your AS grades too much when applying - your personal statement is what matters. I got BBCE at AS and got an offer from Durham. You will both be fine
