    Last year I done 3 ASs,

    Maths - B
    Chemistry - C
    Physics - E

    I wasn't happy so I changed my subjects and got

    Economics - A
    Media - C
    History - D (1 mark from a C so it's getting remarked)
    English LL - D

    I'm doing Economics, Maths, History and English at A2

    Would top unis even consider my applications with these grades? I believe I can end up with at least two As and two Bs because I'm regularly get As in my mock exams.

    How do I prove that I am able to unis like Oxbridge and LSE with these mediocre grades?

    Were there any extenuating circumstances for these results?

    Unfortunately if you could not cope with getting high grades and high UMS at A level then it is highly unlikely you would be even begin to be able to cope somewhere like Oxbridge. Their courses are harder than anywhere else, and when they ban students from having a part time job during time term it's not because they be trolling.

    However, there are still other universities and i'd like to encourage you to do some research and discover what else is out there.

    No they won't. You 'done' some AS levels? Thy definitely won't. Those grades aren't great and even if you can potentially increase them they reflect your ability. Aim for good, but not top universities.

    It's very difficult to get into Oxbridge and LSE even for those with A*AA at A2, but you can alway have a go-but you should look at other amazing Russle Group universites such as Durham, Bristol, Exeter, Edinburgh ect as they usually ask for lower grades like AAA or AAB
