    You will obviously get accepted to some universities with AABB, those are still good grades. You also have good GCSE results which may help. You can definately improve your grades next year.

    It would help to know which subjects you are taking. Are you planning to drop one for A2? Are you planning to retake any modules? Are your predictions likely to be AAA or lower? Where specifically are you thinking of applying, and what is the standard offer for the course?

    Thanks! I did English (B), History (B), Welsh (A) and Maths (A). Going to drop history and resit English, feeling extremely disappointed in myself!

    after A2, i realise its predictions which help, as long as they are realistic. You can easily be predicted AAA, maybe even A*AA depending on your UMS. Get your predicted grade from teachers as soon as school restarts. If it is under what you need you can either reason with the teacher, or work very hard in class to prove to them you can achieve the grades.

    Don't be disappointed those are some good AS level grades now if you still feel disappointed don't look as if it's a wall in your learning use it to motivate you and make you revise more and pay more attention in class. The main problem I see is that people who got good GCSE grades instantly think they're going to ace their A levels when that's hardly the case.
