    Im in Year 12 at the moment, but I have been looking at a few University courses and a lot of the ones I am interested in (Economics) ask for AAB.

    However, I don't know I will be able to achieve a B grade in Maths A Level, but I think an A* in Economics would be possible!

    So can A*AC be equivalent to AAB?

    Thank you in advance!

    It's possible for Universities that look at UCAS points, but I think you'll need to talk to the Universities which only look at grades

    Okay, thank you. I've decided I will start emailing the departments tomorrow

    For Universities that deal in Grades only they very likely won't, if they use UCAS points I would have thought they would.
