    OK, i got bbcd (phys math bio chem) at AS and C in A2 maths in yr 12. Predicted grades BBC
    I have no excuse for my failures, and thats the worst feeling in the world. I hope it will be motivation.

    I want to go to study neuroscience at St Andrews, UCL, KCL, Edinborough and Nottingham. I'm also considering medicine (still!).
    I mean, i'm retaking 5 in January. That would hopefully, with the aid of tutors, bring my bio chem and phys up to an A.

    Will I just get rejected without a second glance? Will my predictions change if i do well? Will the Uni look at me if i do better in the retakes?


    Should i just do a gap year once rejected?

    i think your gonna have to apply for the rubish unis with those grades like me. good unis get thousands of applicants, why would they give you a place over someone who already has A's. its a safer bet for the uni. plus i can imagine those being popular subjects. it sucks i know.
