    I'm so upset because I got AAAC. Chemistry was a C, but I'm even more upset because I got 2 high As for C1 and Statistics but a got a C for C2, so ended up with a really low A for AS Maths overall and I was definitely predicted an A* by the end of A2!! Now that prediction is gone. I want to study Physics at Uni and they all want an A/A* for Maths. And I just blew that chance by getting a C for a module.

    AAAC was for Math, Physics, English and Chemistry - in that order. Anyone know what I can do?? Help!! There's no way to resit before applying. And what unis should I be applying to with my grades??

    Thanks! (I'm dropping Chemistry btw, and resitting Unit 2 - where I got a shocking E.)

    Chemistry is hard.

    Maths, retake - tell them you're retaking if you like.

    And in reality, there's no such thing as a 'low A'. I could say I got a 'high B' in psychology, but that wouldn't stop it being a B...you earnt that A, be proud of it?

    simple. resit c2 and you'll be fine. Drop A2 chem and concentrate on getting AS chem up in jan. You'll be fine. It'll all work out in the end!

    Great set of results in my opinion with one blip! Apply to any university you want! Predicited grades would be A's and A*'s so plenty of opportunity! Be proud of your results!

    ...You can still get an A/A* in maths.

    You have an A over all in maths so it's very possible to get an A or A* at A2.... How can you be disappointed with A's?! Seems a little arrogant in that you want really high A's and are disappointed because they're "low"...
