    Just a thread to say do not give up even with bad grades.

    GCSE's:
    2A*s 7As 3Bs

    At AS I achieved:
    Maths B
    Further Maths D
    Biology E
    Chemistry E

    At A Levels:
    Maths D

    Yes, I have one A level. What I did from there on, is a Business foundation year at Southampton Solent (not the best of Uni's)

    This year, I am going to Kent University for Accounting and Finance. I did this by achieving over 70% in my foundation year. I was 5% away from getting into LSE...

    Bad A levels are not the end of the world. I always knew I could do better and do well if I actually tried. Hard work pays off.

    From One A level to a Top 20 uni for Accounting and Finance, not too shabby if you ask me.

    Hey dude, thats a really great story to look at

    Was it underestimation of AS levels which set you off the bad turn could i ask? Or perhaps subject choices or both o.O

    Thanks man!

    Subject choices for sure, I wasn't really interested in the A levels I took apart from Maths tbh. Also I know I didn't work hard enough. I got the grades I deserved at A levels.
