Hi, I'm hoping if you can help.
I have been studying A levels for my 3rd year now, my current grades are the following:


English AS + A2: - C / Predicted an A

English A2 Coursework A
English A2 Exam E (Retaking)

English AS Coursework B (Retaking)
English AS Exam C

History AS: - B / Predicted an A
History Exam Russia - A
History Exam Warfare - E (Retaking)

Art AS + A2: - C / Predicted a B
ART A2 Coursework C (Retaking)
ART A2 Exam B

ART AS Coursework D (Retaking)
ART AS Exam C


I intend on studying English BA hons (Q300) at select universities, however my question is, is it worth applying to Universities who're asking

AAB/ABB?

Or should I avoid applying for those Universities. I am confident that I am capable of achieving the required grades. (Due to family problems and challenges of life I hadn't achieved well first time around, also it is crucial to note that my personal statement is very strong! -without meaning to sound bigheaded-

I'd appreciate your opinion

Kind Regards

Bobby

Hi Bobby

Unfortunately we don't offer a degree in English at the University of Bradford. We would advise however that you use your UCAS choices wisely. As you know you have 5 choices and if you are offered a place you can then chose a firm choice and an insurance choice. This is a good opportunity to have your first choice as one of the AAB/ABB and your insurance with a lower requirement. If you chose 2 universities that you are happy with, this will ensure you get the best outcome.
