    I got my AS results this morning and got BCDD which I know is really quite awful. The breakdown is:

    B - ICT
    C - Business Studies
    D - English Lang and Lit(ELLA 1 & 2 - AQA)
    D - R.E

    I need BBB or equivalent to get into my favorite uni next year, can I get that with these sorts of grades? I was very close to a C in both of my D's btw, 5 or 6 UMS marks off.

    Also I don't know what subject to drop next year? I was going to drop Business Studies but now I have D's in two of my favorite subjects I'm doubting my decision.

    Any advice or opinions would be helpful!!

    Don't worry mate, you can definitely get those 3 Bs with these AS grades. It'll be hard work - make no mistake there - but if you have the work ethic you'll achieve it. Regarding which one to drop, I would definitely keep business if I were you as it's versatile. I would personally drop R.E but of course talk it through with your parents and teachers. It's probably most important to do the ones you enjoy the most, as that approach is most likely to ensure that you put in the effort necessary to succeed
