Hello I am currently an AS level student doing English Language and Literature, Religious Studies,and Sociology. I got 3A 2B 3C and 1D in my GCSE exams in 2009. A's in Religious Studies, English Literature and Geography B's in English and ICT and C's in French, German and Biology. D in Maths.
I am re-sitting my Maths as I have always been bad at it. I want to be a Social Worker and looking for a degree at Northumbria Uni in Social Work. It says you need 260 UCAS points which is equivalent to BCC at A-Level. Do you think it is possible for me to achieve this? I have loads of work experience in the sector and it seems like a natural progression and I am passionate about it. Hope to pass Maths soon and when I do do you think I stand a chance???
Thanks for any help given

You achieved your best grades in English and RS and you're studying them at AS, so you should definitely be capable of doing them at A Level and getting a good grade.
You'll need to work hard to get the grades you want, but having a passion for the subject and having lots of experience are also important.
Also, you'll need to pass maths, but if you work hard you should be ok

Yes this is a realistic target. You can do it.
If you're doing the subjects you are good at and got As in at GCSE, you will find you can manage getting good grades in them. Just make sure you do put the effort in though.
