    Just got my AS grades:


    ICT: A
    Geography: B
    Economics: B
    History: C
    Maths C


    GCSEs: A* A* A* A A A A A B B


    I'll continue with geography, economics and maths to A2, meaning that I'll be predicted AAB (the minimum entry requirements). I want to do economics, or economics and management: what unis should I apply for realistically?

      Ones that you feel happy going to/like the look of? :p:

      Ok, so seriously, well done on your results (5 of them too, nice). First question, do you think you can improve next year and turn Cs into Bs and Bs into As? Even if you don't and stay as you are, you're looking at ABB. If you can a B into an A then AAB. AAB will get you into a lot of universities. Once UCAS starts to calm down, have a look on their site at Economics courses at a whole range of universities - don't be scared to aim high - it will tell you what their entry requirements are. Naturally, use this as a basis for what unis you should apply to. Don't just go for reputation either, make sure you go to a uni that you can envisage yourself being happy at.
