    I got a B in chemistry due to the practical being a D. Was able to apply to everywhere I wanted really. I think it's cancels out like Oxbridge and Birmingham... But yeah don't worry about get AAAB /AABB that's very good for AS

    Thank you so much for your help! Would you agree that more people will get higher grades at A2 than AS?

    would a B in chemistry be a complete disaster at AS? I made some horrible mistakes in AQA unit 1 chemistry, I might not get an A because to that.
    I'm expecting a B in chem too!! Already decided i was resitting before i did the exam haha

    Depends per uni, some may want an A in the dropped subject (eg Southampton), others might want a B (eg Sheffield), or some may not care!

    I am on the verge of getting a low A or high B in chemistry, however with my luck it will probably be the latter! I also doubt i will get a B in physics as well, i blame this on our rubbish teacher!

    How were your other subjects? What other AS's did you take? You going to drop any?

    I took chem, bio, maths and geography! and yes i am dropping maths.. soo boring, plus I only need 3 A2s for uni

    Also everyone in my year hated the physics, so you're probably not alone with that :P

    I have a friend who got a B at AS Chemistry and is going into her second year at Cardiff

    Just make sure that you get an A prediction and then get that A; also apply tactically - so avoid Oxbridge but other than that you're probably fine Good luck

    I haven't got the money to take the BMAT haha :/
    I'm "preparing" for the UKCAT tomorrow and my exam's in 26 days lol but I'm going on holiday for 10 days so yep that's not looking so great... :/ I've gotten like 34% in mocks. ://

    For my GCSEs I did quite well I got 11A*s and 1A but then again they won't matter if my AS levels go reaaaally badly. ://

    And idk I just think PBL I wouldn't have that much motivation for it haha I mean I like to be spoon-fed a little bit. I would love a traditional course but I don't see how I'd get one if I'm not going to take the BMAT. Oh well!
    There are plenty of non-PBL, non-traditional courses that don't ask for the BMAT

    Yep! I am not surprised, lack of good qualified physics teachers and a boring specification, I am not surprised.

    Birmingham is also traditional and non-BMAT (although they require stellar AS results, which in the context of this thread isn't a great thing). Most integrated courses contain a bit of PBL, but I gather lectures, tutorials and seminars are still the main form of teaching

    I've just passed my first year at Cardiff you're welcome, PM me if you have any queries.

    [Especially if it's for Cardiff (as I'm there), or Cambridge, Southampton and Brighton (as I applied to those schools]

    Good Luck
