    What happens if worst comes to worst and you get your predicted grades?
    Im not saying that you will, you seem determined not to but it does happen to some people.
    Would you just go to the university that you have no intention of going to now.
    Really youre taking an offer (if you get them) away from someone who may really want to go to that uni just so that you can adjust somewhere 'better' IF you get better than predicted

    You need WORK experience and you clearly need life experience if you are rushing what's essentially is a 50k+ decision because you have **** grades and don't have the patience to aim for anything higher. Have some standards.

    Ngl, I don't wanna be the party pooper but AAB from CCC is too much, depending on how you're doing it like how many you are resitting - remember resitting doesn't just mean going into the exam, this means extra revision hours for these exams, hence you have less time for your A2's. Your teachers are possibly being harsh with BCC, with resits BBC-BBB may be possible. However, I would recommend you to take a gap year or a retake year!

    I got B (Business), E (Economics), E (Math) in my first year due to various reasons which I won't go into lol - so I decided to resit Econ and Math + doing the A2's for econ and business (so I had like 12 exams from beginning of may to end of june :O ). Anyways, after missing half of the term as I had to leave UK to get visa renewed, I came back and got AAB with about 4-5 months of revision. Now I am predicted A*AA + A* EPQ, and the only A2 I am doing is math, with 1 resit in econ, and 1 in business to boost my overall grades. Basically with those results I would say do a proper retake year, better chance of securing better grades and a better university place!

    Remember resits are fine with most universities for most courses!

    Also - you could try Adjustment if you feel you will get higher than the offers you already have.

    Hope this helps!

    I will only say a few sentences!
    You have mentioned you got CCC for AS and you want an ABB for Uni which some find it unrealistic. I won't say it is unrealistic but requires much effort to achieve, you CAN STILL achieve it. Try to see why you tend to lose marks, change your study strategies, use new revision techniques! And of course, stick to your revision. Note that it must be effective revision
