    I'm redoing my AS year after getting DDE last year, due to being lazy. I think I can get something like ABB this year and I've been getting As and Bs in practice papers, however I don't feel like my exams are going that well so I might get something like BCC or CCC.

    Is it worth going to uni with that? It doesn't seem good enough for any good courses or good unis?

    It really depends on what you want to do and what you will get out of university. There are plenty of courses which will accept BCC/CCC and you shouldn't base your life around what grades you get or didn't get. That said, as with anybody (even those who get A*A*A*A*A*!), you should definitely consider whether university is the best means of achieving what you want from life.

    It just seems like the thing to do nowadays. I don't know what else I would do if I didn't go

    Your in pretty much the same predicament as me, this is just the hard bit keep going if you get ccc or whatever, retake and if you still dont get the grades go to uni. Britain have created an educational system whereby doing a levels and getting a degree gives a higher chance of survival in society ( im talking in terms of salary )

    Yes, maybe it is "the thing" to do but if you go to university for that reason alone then it seems like a complete waste of £30,000+.

    My advice would be to have a general idea of what you want to do in the future, and work it out from there.
