Average grades, still possible to go to a good Uni? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all,
    I would like to study Maths at University in 2014, but I don't think my AS grades are good enough, even though I can do a lot better.
    I got a B in Stats, C in Maths & a C in AS/A2 German. I've resat Maths this year & I really don't understand why I don't perform well on the day.

    I got 80/100 in C1, should've got a little higher, but a D in both D1 & C2? So yeah, I'm pretty frustrated as I worked hard at revising D1, but a maybe little less at C2 than possible. I was achieving B/A in ALL of my mocks.
    Stats: I got 88/100 in S1, 80 in S3, but just 60 in S2? Others notice I put myself under unneccessary pressure (mentally) which has led to me feeling depressed & stressed with things, such as exams.
    I know I can do better than this. I was very close to getting an A* in Maths at GCSE. I'm thinking about taking AS Further Maths next year in order to aid me for Uni, but are my grades good enough? Perhaps my college could predict me with AABC? (C in German). PS. I live in the North West

    I'd really recommend asking these questions in the 'Mathematics' forum in 'University Courses' for specific advice.
