I got 3 D's at AS in physics, maths, and chemistry. My first choice uni is asking for ABB. I'm retaking most of my AS modules as well as taking my A2 exams. Is there any way on earth that i could get ABB and get into my first choice uni when my predicted grades are maximum BBB?
One solution for applicants with dodgy AS grades is to wait until you have your A2 grades before applying.
This way, no-one takes any notice of your AS grades (just your A2s), you can target your applications better (no guesswork about A2 grades), AND it gives you this year to really concentrate on your A2s without all the distractions of UCAS applications etc. This means you might actually get the ABB you need.
