    I received my A-level results today. I'm extremely shocked by what I got. I performed a lot better in June than I did in January. What are the chances of me receiving an offer for a university which requires AAB?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You're in exactly the same boat as me. I received CCCd in my as results but uni's require AAB in the course i want to do.. I think they might give you a conditional depending on personal statements and references etc.. I hope i'm not completely rejected by all

    It seems like ALL the universities want AAB! Its so annoying! If you don't mind me asking, what did you get in January?

    In January I got ABCD. I hope I can get offers with the requirements of AAB!

    I wouldn't rule it out, but I don't think your predicted grades will match AAB, probably BBC or BBB if you're lucky. So you're going to need a good personal statement, references and what are your GCSE grades like if they show consistency? Have a back up university too.

    When I spoke to my teacher before about this she said no matter what I got she'd predict me an A. In one paper I got an A it was only the second one I didn't do too well in so maybe that teacher will predict me a B. The third teacher said I'm capable of an A... Maybe I can push him.

    My GCSE results are okayish not all As but I didn't fail them.

    Do you think I've got a good chance if my teachers predict me AAB?

    Yes, I'm sure they'll confirm this in your references too

    Heyy guys, I would really appreciate if anyone could sort of predict my chances of getting into KCL with the AS grades I just achieved. I'm really interested in studying Politics of the International Economy. The grade requirements are AAA..

    So my AS grades are AACC - A's in Economics & Biology and C's In Maths & Chemistry. I didn't do as well as I hoped to, but how are those as grades? I don't have much of an indication. I'll be retaking Maths for sure and was planning to drop Chem initially too.

    I think my predicted grades will be AAB or A* A B (High A in AS Econ) .. Do you think that could somehow weigh out the AAA requirements if in addition to that, I try and put together an amazing personal statement? I've done so much that is geared towards this course in particular like summer schools for this course in random cities half way across the world I had never visited before! or will they just not consider me?

    You don't have to be nice :P I can handle honesty.. I hope!
    Thank you!
