    What grades did you get if you don't mind me asking? This is offering me hope too, so disappointed with my E in Biology even though I also got an ABB in other subjects, I NEED Biology.

    I got really average/bad grades but I want to study Law- B,C,C, D- So im dropping psychology the subject I got a D in...If I really work hard next year, I can get AAB or AAB and can go to a Top 20 Uni for Law Its really annoying because I missed getting a B in History by a few marks which would've massively helped but oh well.

    Are you planning to retake Biology then? Im not sure if I should retake History or English Lit the subjects I got C's in

    I am so jealous!!
    Manchester rejected me for just one grade.
    Needed AAB for international relations,
    got ABB and still rejected me.
    Fortunately they instead offer me philosophy and politics.
    I had ABB for Philosophy and politics but got BBB and they let me in. Wanted to switch to IR but they said no :/

    I checked UCAS before I got my results and was so surprised I'd gotten in
    but then I went to collect my results and was somewhat disappointed by them
    I didn't meet my offer and ended up getting CCC but they still let me in so who cares!
