    Try and get AAB? Not that hard if you are only a grade away, just practice more. Or wait for Clearing...not much else you can do.

    Have you checked the conditions carefully? Unis normally give offer of either 320 (= ABB) or 340 (=AAB) as I understand. I have a feeling that they need 350 UMS from 3.5 subjects, mean you can add 1 AS to the total marks.

    Yep it is 350 from 3.5 but the subject i dropped i got an E in that was history so it would be hard to get a decent grade in that
    could i change my ucas and persuade my teachers to let me sit another AS?

    1. Retaking your History AS in summer, push it up at least a C to make things much easier for you.

    2. Do another AS subject but I'd suggest you emailing your universities about that change. I doubt they would have any problem though. Good luck!

    Hmm, I kinda messed up by applying to universities that wouldn't accept my grades and I ended up at a city I didn't wanna go to and to a course that I didn't like. Serves me right for not doing the research.

    You won't be able to change choices at this stage. You will either have to take a chance on getting those grades, or decline all your offers and go through Extra.

    yes i was thinking of doing extra but it is a big risk and the course i am applying to psychology is a very poular course so i may end up not recieving any offers
