    I am prepared for failure.

    Genuine failure, not TSR failure which is getting anything but 4 As at AS.

    I don't think I made it into university with AQA keeping the grade boundaries so high for CHEM4. I am lost :'( My firm is King's for Biomedical Sciences which require AAB and I highly doubt I got in there. My insurance is Westminster Uni but they want BBC and I think I got BCC... Do you think I will still be accepted onto second choice because I am so worried now? 😢😢

    If you ended up with grades in the range of ABB - ABC when your firm wants A*AA, would you retake or would you settle for your insurance, because these grades, which quite a few unis would accept, aren't terrible enough to warrant retaking?

    Or if they accepted you because they're being lenient due to your extenuating circumstances, would you want to go in with grades in the range of ABB - ABC, knowing that everyone else there achieved much higher grades?

    If you ended up with AAC/D/E and your firm still accepted you, would you defer for a year and retake the one A level?

    No idea what to do...

    Ive just checked the grade boundaries but they have no significance. Besides I havent prepared for all the scenarios including the clearing option. I'm gonna gather some good and slightly good unis.

    Im just hoping for adjustment to be available for me.

    Grade boundaries higher for economics and History. Still confident for history but a bit knocked for econ/geog. I just hope my pessimism about subjective marking isn't accurate ...
