    I've firmed Southampton for BA Hons Geography, of which my offer is (ABB) (A in geography). I'm pretty sure I can get the A in geography and B in maths. Hell, I could even get an A* in geography! However, my third subject, computing, could be more of a challenge to get a B, I can almost imagine myself getting a high C. However I know i've also got an A in my Extended Project Qualification which sits nicely on my application too.

    From past experience of these sort of events, what do you expect the likelihood is of Southampton accepting me with high A and high B in maths, but a only a high C in computing, with my A in my EPQ? Is it likely to still get me into the course?

    With love from a very pessimistic student.

    Dont 'write off' getting a B. Get your revision going and work your bum off.

    How badly do you want to go to S'ton?
    Enough to push *everything* for it?
    Then do it.

    I haven't written it off whatsoever, I am very determined! Just unfortunately a very pessimistic person.
