    I'm in my AS year. Say if I don't get at least aaa, will I be able to apply to unis that are at least AAA?
    I got AABB at AS and got an offer from Oxford for 3As this year...I did a biology retake and brought one of my Bs up to an A in January but my offer came before I got the retake results

    Ah! i wish you the best of luck! Hopefully all went well. Unit 3 could have gone better but im hoping it went better than January. I got a low C in Jan so im really hoping for an improvement this time around.

    How did you find unit 3? Better or worse than January?
    thanks, good luck to you too as well ah really, I got a B in unit 3 in jan (scraped it, got 70/100) but didn't choose to resit it as it was a clash with my final chemistry exam (which was 2 hours long) so i resat 1+2 instead which went okay.
    do you need an A overall?

    Good science choice

    So what institution is that accredited by? RSC? Or an education one?

    I don't think it's RSC accredited, because you choose modules - I'm not sure how much Chemistry you have to do from the Natural Sciences course to gain accreditation, but probably more than 1.5 years. I don't think the education part holds any important accreditation (in the same way that RSC accreditation allows you to work in the chemical industry).
