    So I got my AS results today and I got ABCDE (predicted AAAB);

    A - Business
    B - Maths
    C - Physics
    D - Further Maths
    E - Computing

    In my Maths and Physics it was just one paper/unit out of 3 that let me down and stopped me from achieving the grade up, so I'll probably resit them. I'll also probably drop computing as I don't really enjoy it all that much anyway.


    1) Would it still be possible for me to get into a Russell Group uni with these results? Or am I going to have to lower my aims a bit?

    2) I hate business, like really despise it. Having said that though it'd be criminal to drop it having got my only A in it. So would it be best to carry on with Business, Maths, Further Maths and Physics or drop business and just work really hard at Maths, Further Maths or Physics? or do I even need further maths and should I reduce my workload a bit and just do Business/Maths/Physics? (I want to do Maths at uni).


    I'm a bit confused anyway and not entirely sure whether to be happy, content or disappointed with my results to be honest, so any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks in advance

    Sorry but as mathematician I find your alphabetical grade sequence incredibly pleasing, well done

    C - Computing (4% away from B)
    D - Maths (4% away from C - stupid S1 module ruined me)
