    Say I wanted to go to an establishment offering ABB and I got ACCC at AS when I had potential to get As and Bs at A level but didn't due to lack of work and effort. I am fully aware of the option to retake (and therefore gain As and Bs) however how would this effect applying for universities etc?

    Well if you didn't do as well at AS, it would more pressure on next year to do well. If you can get some contingency UMS points to back you up at AS, then if an A2 module didn't go as well as expected, then at least you have a backup.

    Depends where you apply really. Some places scrutinize your GCSE/AS grades, whereas others are more concerned about your PS, so they're more interested in your predicted grades. Only issue is that if the problem last year was lack of work/effort, will your teachers predict you the higher grades?
