    Hi everyone,

    I just received my AS grades yesterday, they didn't turn out what I expected. My results are as follow:

    FYI: I'm doing the regional paper and edexcel exam board

    Biology: B, UMS: 220/300
    Chemistry: B, UMS: 216/300
    Economics: B, UMS: 143/200
    Pure Maths (C1,C2,C3): B, UMS: 214/300
    Chinese: A

    Plus, my IGCSE results weren't good either, I only got 2A*2A2B1C
    What should I do with such results? I want to go to Business & Management in Durham University sooooo much, do I have any luck in entering? My school predicted grades are really strict, I think I'm getting straight B at most.

    I'm also struggling between studying Chemistry or Economics in A2, I heard both of them are really hard and stuffs like that. To be honest, my Maths is really poor, I don't know would Chemistry be too hard for me; English isn't my mother tongue, so it might be pretty hard for me to write long essays in A2 Econ.

    Many apologies for any of my grammatical mistakes and I really appreciate your help

    They may not be what you want, but it annoys me that you've said they're bad, they're not the best, but they're not bad. For A2 I'd probably keep on economics and maths because they seem the most appropriate, along with one of the sciences, a language at a high grade could be benefitial in getting into a business course though. As to the difficulty, I think chemistry is probably the hardest one there, so maybe drop that and carry on with biology as the science
