    Hi everyone, seriously need help because I didn't do anywhere near as well as I thought I would in my AS exams. I thought I would get atleast AAABB but ended up with ABBBB and I’m really disappointed because I’m not usually a B student.
    I'm dropping two of the B’s- Spanish and Chemistry- but hoping to pull chem up by redoing my coursework (A in both the exams, E for the isa) and then achieve A*AA next year in economics, maths and history respectively which I’m hoping to be predicted.
    I want to do economics and was going to apply to Warwick and a few others which range in standard offers from A*AA-AAA. I got 6 A*’s and 6 A’s at GCSE which obviously is nowhere near as good as other people in my field, do you think I can still successfully apply to Warwick and Bristol? or maybe just change my degree which I really don't want to do?

    Don't change your degree as you really wanna do it. What you actually got is great it's not like what you think. Apply for bristol and warwick am sure they will welcome you and they don't ask for high requirements so good luck for that
