My results at AS were very inconsistent, achieving an A, C, and 2 U's. This heavily affected my UCAS application and meant the higher status uni's I applied to rejected me. However, my A2 progress has been a vast improvement and I'm on track to achieving AAB.
I am determined to get into one of the Russell Group uni's, none of which I received offers from, in order to maximise my overall future career prospects. My question is, would staying on for a third year make me more likely to receive an offer given that my UCAS application would now look far better with two A's and a B?
Will Staying for a Third Year Damage my UCAS Chances? Watch

Depends which course you're thinking of doing and which universities. Many elite Russell groups and courses such as medicine require A-Levels be taken over a two year period.
It is near impossible to give a direct answer because it varies between un and course. Check with the university directly for a definite answer.
For the most part, I know people accepted to Warwick and York who have worked over a 3 year period
For your situation I would recommend going through adjustment, but often RG and 94G universities have very few spaces. Should you get your predicted grades, a gap year seems more logical than a third year.Last edited by EloiseStar; 11-04-2013 at 16:53.
