    Hey. So I got my AS results on Thursday and obviously it was a bit of a disaster. I was set on dropping English therefore didn't revise and ended up with an A and a D totalling a C which is 6 ums off a B. in my other subjects I obtained BBC. The C in chemistry which I want to drop.

    I want to study Biological sciences at university and am wondering how much trouble I am in? I feel absolutely awful about myself. I feel so stupid.

    With no January exams do you think it's possible to achieve these grades? I'm hoping to push my Biology from a mid B to an A and obviously English from a high C to a B.

    It's entirely feasible to get from a BBC to ABB You could probably expect to gain a grade in each subject if you put the work in

    Totally possible. I went from ACC to AAB back in 2007. Got in to biomedical science at Kings (graduated 2010).
    During A2 year I retook quite a few module papers in January

    I got my results after resitting year 12 and got B in Business, C in maths and D in physics. I was expected an A after doing so well in maths but got B in C2 and C in C1. And C in decision 1 . Also got A in Buss1 then got C in Buss2. Can I still get an A in business and maths? And atleast a C in physics? I want to do either accounting or maths at university but I don't know whether I can achieve atleast ABC. I wanted to pursue a career as an actuary or an accountant but I have just lost all hope. Do you think I could get into a good uni still and pursue my chosen career and how will universities view me as a candidate with those grades as I'm applying this year? I have resat mechanics in physics twice!! Thanks in advance for any help

    Only your predictions will be considered by uni's. Have a chat with your teachers & get some good predictions. Totally possible to improve your grades for your chosen course.

    Good luck!

    If you resat more than once and still not achieved the grades you want, then you must question is aiming really high the best thing to do? Especially since you have resat the entire year and only did 3 AS levels.


    I know someone who got BBCD at AS level, applied for 5 AAB universities that do economics. Resat some of his exams 3 times. Paid hundreds for his scripts back and resits. Ended up getting BBB. Has to take a year out.

    I'll let you choose what the moral of this story is.

    I went from BCDE, all were just on their grade boundaries, to ABC, i probably could have got AAB had I worked a little harder but yes, I didn't work in AS, did some retakes in A2, worked hard and managed to get into my firm university. IT'S POSSIBLE!
    Good luck

    I think it's possible. I'm in a similar situation wanting to study biological science at university too. Got BBBC, so dropping the C which was in chemistry. So hoping to go from BBB to AAB next year I'm hoping my teachers predict me AAB otherwise it's going to be hard to get into most of the universities that I want to

    Hi there to answer your question, yes it is certainly possible to pull BBC up to ABB. Some one in my college last year pulled B in Psychology up to an A*.

    I went from BBCC at AS to ABB (nearly AAB) for A2. Is not that hard, just retake a few modules and try hard for A2 (especially if you do any coursework) :o:
