yea im well confused, I gave up on ascertaining what was going on.
The rules dont mean that you have to do your AS and A2 all in one sitting in the final summer. They also dont mean that you cant take modules early, such as unit 4 in january etc. What they do mean is that you cant take 2 a-levels one year, then take an extra year and achieve another 2 because it is easier that way, and you can get AAAA more easily. What they also prohibit is the use of resits (or thats how I read it).
apparantly you can re-sit a/s modules. but you cant resit a whole year. Well some people from my school who are going to oxbridge this year did some re-sits of AS modules in June, so i think that could be allowed.
AS GRADES: AAACC
in alpha order coz i have no prefs lol
1: Aber, European Law, 340 (with GS and AS)
2: Kent, European Legal Studies, 320 (poss with GS not sure need to check)
3: Lancaster, International Law, AAA-AAB (with GS)
4: Northumbria, Law(Exempting), ABB
5: Sussex, Law with American Studies, AAB-ABB

a good range of tariffs methinks, different parts of the country, different courses but each with same foundations lol and all except the Aberand North courses are 4yrs long because they have a yr abroad.
AS grades: ABBBB
1: KCL (AAB this is my first choice)
2: City ABB
3: Westminister ABB
4: Reading AAB
5: Exeter AAB
6: dont know
I'm predicted AAB. so any uni's in london preferable.
yeah i was gonna come back and say, not really kirstin, but lookin back thru the thread quite a few of u are applying to kcl lol!
I'm having a bit of trouble deciding to be honest.
Academically I've got pretty good results behind me:
GCSE: 5A* 4A (2005). B and a C (2004). I took my GCSE's in exceptional circumstances last summer - Dad was taken seriously ill in the first week of exams, great timing I know.
AS: AAAAA (including General Studies). Economics - 297, History -290 and English - 281, which means I should get AAA. I'm planning on continuing with all four subjects to be safe.
I'm not sure I really want to go down the Oxbridge route to be honest, and I'm worried about the living costs in London. Saying that I will probably apply to UCL and KCL.
Nottingham and Warwick I will apply to, possibly Bristol but I'm not overly keen. Living in Bournemouth means that I wouldn't want to go too far north, as it would be too far away from home.
theres Reading(AAB), Southhampton(AAA), UEA(AAB), Birmingham (AAA), Cardiff (AAA) possibly
