    Well today I got my AS results.
    A- Geography- Unit 1- 127, Skills- 45
    B- Physics- Mechanics- 52, Electrons....photons- 120
    C- Chemistry- Atoms...groups- 60, Chains...resources- 83
    E- Maths- PC1- 53, PC2- 35, Mechanics- 45

    I want to go to university to study environmental science which is ABB-BBB

    I was going to drop maths anyway as I was rubbish all through the year, but do you think universities could make me an offer based upon ABC?

    I think I could retake chemistry to get a B alright.

    pick a uni with offers within your reach, not every uni is gonna be ABB-BBB !

    Well, the 'typical offers' on the websites are:

    Leeds- BBB (3 year) AAA (4 year)
    Reading- 300 points from 3 subjects
    Birmingham- BBB (3 year) AAB (4 year)
    Sheffield- ABB
    Nottingham- BBB (3 year) ABB (4 year)

    Realistically I think I can achieve any offer of ABB or BBB but do you think with a C in chemistry they would make the offer?
    Obviously my personal statement would be as good as it could be to try and help me get in...

    I'd retake Chemistry, get that to a B and maybe ask if your Physics teacher to predict you an A?

    I am definitely retaking chemistry. And, I may retake one physics unit (mechanics) and try to get that up
