    I really want to do Computer Science and AI at either Birmingham, Leeds, York, Loughbourgh or Sheffield (these require ABB-AAA)

    I put in a lot of revision and got disappointing results (AS) ;

    Maths overall: C
    Core 1: B
    Core 2: B (High B)
    Mechanics: D

    Physics overall: C
    Unit 1: C (Low C, this was a re-sit result)
    Unit 2: B (High B)
    Unit 3 (EMPA): D

    Business overall: B
    Unit 1: A
    Unit 2: D

    Computing overall: C
    Theory: C
    Programming: C

    So I got BCCC, I'm not sure what to re-sit or whether I should re-sit the year. I do NOT want to do Business, it's a subject I can't stand and I couldn't focus to revise for it in June (hence my D). I enjoy the other three subjects and revised so much and I thought I could of achieved ABBC-AABB between all four subjects. Should I look at uni's with a lower entry requirement, re-sit the year, re-sit my exams or find another course? I really don't know, I thought I should of had a higher grades than what I achieved. :/

    Thanks.

    If you're set on studying computer science, then that's fine, but it may be an idea to reconsider your university choices and also have some more safer choices based on your AS grades. You can also resit a few of your modules to bump up your grades. There's no point in changing the course you want to do if you can find some universities with some lower universities.
