    Basically I was meant to get ABBC in my as results, so looked for universities accordingly. I got CDDD in my results. So i was wondering how this affects the universities that I can apply to? Am I in a situation now where I can't apply to ABB uni's, despite reference and predicted grade factors? Could someone please advise as I'm a bit disheartened:mad:. Thanks.

    What do you think went wrong? you were obviously predicted those because your teachers thought you were capable. I think perhaps what would be better for you is to resit the year and try and do better so that you have a better chance at being able to apply at those unis that ask for ABB. If u decided to resit I would advise only taking 3 subjects, it will be less pressure.

    I got the exact same results as you last year, CDDD, the majority of the offers you'll get will be from low ranked unis so just accept them and try your best to exceed your offers to get a decent uni through adjustment/clearing like I did.

    Not gonna like going from CDDD to a good mark will be tough, I never slept before any of my 6 summer exams just so that I could do like 12 hours straight revision before each one (which worked for me since that's how I learn best) So find what works for you and stick to it.

    But since there are no more January exams it's gonna be a tougher challenge for you but you'll just have to try your best

    I agree, take these results and aim for the highest, do as much revision it takes until it sticks into your head and get great A2 results and go to a good university through adjustment. You can also re-sit some modules if you feel you'll be able to handle it.

    I got BCDD, however most of my modules were As and Bs. I was very close in my B subject to an A (2 marks) and close to a B on my C subject (7 marks) and in one of my D subjects I got an A in one module but an E in another. So I'm in a position where I will be re taking 3 or 4 exams, is there any chance I will receive offers from unis asking for AAB/ABB?

    Hey guys I got ABCD really upset as I thought id do better. I want to do law. If I drop the D (Biology) and keep the A(English lit&lang) B (economics) C (History - B in one unit and C in the other) do you think with a prediction of AAB/ABB I'd stand a good chance of going to a good uni? I'm so disheartened pls help

    Hey guys, obviously I got my results too today and was disappointed with them. I was going to ask, I was predicted AABE, and achieved BCDD.
    Is there any real point in trying to apply for Psychology to unis such as Sheffield, Sussex or Loughborough? Or is the chances of me actually getting an offer extremely low considering my poor AS results? Considering this, I would drop the D and I believe I could resit to bring the D to an A/B.
    Thanks.

    I believe Psychology has no relevance to Medicine so you should be fine. I definitely think you can get into a good Russell group university.

    Hi thank you, but I have looked it up and if you want to do medicine universities usually require three A levels ( all at A's or above) and a fourth as-level at a B and I was planning on dropping psychology. And i was also wondering if you knew any good resources to to revise from for the UKCAT.

    I haven't actually decided yet, do you have any in mind that will not put as much pressure on the fourth as-level, and I also wanted to ask you, if you have any past experience with applying to medicine, or are applying right now, or are in medical school right now?

    That depends on if you're willing to repeat or not. I would tell you to carry on to year 13, and don't bother retaking. In year 13 , if you work hard, then you can make up for these results and end up with As and Bs. If you can't manage that but still get good results, then you can take a gap year and do retakes then.
    ( the difference is that in a gap year, you can study in your own time and get work experience and so forth, rather than having to go to school for another year)

    Don't be disheartened!! I got ABBD, I re-sat some of the modules and changed my D to a A just by one exam! I got an offer from Lancaster for AAA and I got ABB with A* in extended project and still got in to do geography! You have a great chance of going to a good uni just be clever about the exams you re-sit so you don't re-sit loads but can still make a difference! Please don't be disheartened - you've got a great chance!

    I got ABBD and I re-sat the D to make it an A and then this year got ABB with an A* in extended project as well and got into Lancaster who gave me an AAA offer! There's plenty of chance you'll get into a good uni to do psychology! Don't worry!
