I have achieved CDDD at AS and the entry requirements of the university I am hoping to apply to are ABB at A2

I believe I am capable of achieving these grades through resits but since the university will only see my AS Grades, will I still recieve conditional offers?

I am currently doing three subjects at A2

Thanks for the help

Hi, it depends on your predicted grades.
They may consider you if you had a legitimate reason for under performing at AS. Ask your tutor to mention that you are retaking, so unis will know you have a good chance of meeting the entry requirements. I'm sure you'll get your desired grades.

It depends upon your predicted grades, but to be honest, unless you have serious extenuating circumstances universities may consider an increase of 2 grades in each subject as unrealistic. If your predicted grades are ABB, you might stand a chance, but if you have your heart set on ABB unis and you are sure you will achieve good grades, you're probably best off waiting for clearing or applying during a gap year.
