    I'm currently doing A2 in Chemistry, Economics and Biology CIE A Levels. My offer from UCL was AAA and I got AAB in Chemistry, Economics and Biology, respectively, at AS, but barely. I was just wondering, how hard is it to get AAA at A2 from these grades and how do I do it?

    thanx

    You'd need to get A's/B's in Chemistry and Economics A2, and a mid-strong A in Biology A2 to get AAA. I think resitting a Biology paper **might** be a good option just to boost your UMS (it depends how high your B is), but you're definitely on track for AAA with those sort of grades.

    I think you'd be able to get AAA, it mostly depends on the UMS usually, I'm not sure if it's the same for all exam boards but AQA ask for 80% UMS for an A overall.
    Check what exam boards you're with and if you can check what UMS you got, then look for grade boundaries, that should be able to tell you how easy/difficult it'll be to get AAA.

    Hope I helped

    I was expecting OP to ask if it were possible to go from a DDE to an AAB or something, haha.

    But, dude, of course you can. You're on target; just don't slip up and continue what you're doing, and you'll be fine.
