    Are AS results of BBCC + A in EPQ good for chances of receiving an offer from a university to study Politics or IR at AAB/ABB requirements? My predictions will most likely be ABB, probably AAB

    Here are the courses and universities I'm looking at:

    - International Relations, i would really like to go here, but I'm not even sure i'll achieve 3 A's let alone recieve an offer.

    AAB - International Relations

    AAB - International Relations

    AAB - Politics with International Relations

    AAB - Politics

    AAB - International Relations

    ABB - International Relations

    ABB - Politics

    Do you think I should apply to them or is it not worth it? I have a lot of extracurricular activities related to Politics as well including work abroad. What about KCL? I believe its pointless applying there, but please share your honest opinions

    Thanks for your time.

    I don't know for sure but I know people who got into uni with less than the universities requirements, a good strong personal statement will be a major boost as well as good interview skills I would recommend talking to a careers advisor at your school or college about it to be sure! I spoke to mine and they told me to have a couple (or at least one) matching my AS results as if all goes terribly at least I will have the lower requirements to fall on to best of luck to you :awesome:
