    I'm really worried as i took critical thinking AS but may only get a C grade in it

    I'm considering applying to Oxford, LSE, Southampton, Reading and Queen Marys for Geography with my predicted grades in Economics, Geography, Biology and PE being (A*AAA)

    Would i be more likely to be rejected because of me flopping in Critical Thinking

    C is still a worthy grade, that's my opinion.

    Now for something a leetle more facty:

    I got a D in AS level music and it didn't blemish my overall grade pacakge in any way. I got into a good university based on AACbd in my A Levels and maybe just as importantly, the extra curricular subject based stuff that I think made me stand out (the universities that carefully select their candidates will look at the person and their grades overall)

    Ultimately, they will look at the good points and probably just look at the lower grades and be like "oh well, ok *no comment*"

    Hope this helps

    No one cares about critical thinking, not even the examiners.
