I'm a little confused about applying and getting offers? Watch

    This may be a stupid question, but when applying to a University to you need to have gotten AS results which are the same as what they are hoping to see you get at A2, and if not will they not give you an offer?

    I really want to go to York University to study Psychology and that requires AAA/AAB

    In January I got AAC and in June my overall grades ended up being ABD. I know where I went wrong, i spent too much time on Psychology memorising essays (which I got an A in) and no time in Human Biology(which I got a D in), throughout the year I got A's and B's in mocks through working hard, it's just through exam time I wasn't consistent enough with this revision and I wasn't good with Time-management. I know I can get either AAA/AAB, my Psychology lecturer for AS even reckons I could get an A* next year. I know I can do better.

    lol xD I didn't mean to go off topic there, but either way, with my AS grades, is it possible that they won't even consider giving me an offer? And if so, can I apply next year (Lets say I do get 3 AAA's) will they then give me an offer do you think?

    I hope this all makes sense,

    Thank you!! & I hope everyone's results went well today!!!!

    Nope, I got into the Cambridge winter pool with AACC. Concentrate on your PS and extracurriculars and it should see you straight.

    This case obviously depends on the uni, but I hope the above example with Cambridge is as good as any! Good luck.

    Cambridge applications involve interviews though, so it's a slightly different situation.

    I would take a year out and retake, particularly if you know that you could have done better.

    My plan is to do Human Biology AS alongside A2 next year, as this is what I got a D in and then continue the other two onto A2 as I got good grades in them, do you think I should not apply for Uni this year and wait to apply next year?
