Hi all, Happy Results Day! Just got my AS results: Maths A, Chemistry A, Biology B and German B. Slightly disappointed because I was expecting all A's and was very very close (will do remarks and possibly a resit or two).
Wanting to do Biochemistry at Bath, Bristol, Oxford, Cardiff, Exeter or Warwick and probably have the predicted A-Level grades of Maths A*, Chemistry A and Biology A.
Have done work experience in top labs in Cambridge (and local GP surgeries) a STEM World course for Biomedical Sciences at Imperial.
What do you guys think are my chances for getting into these uni's (focusing on Bath and Bristol) with these okay-ish AS-Level results?
Any opinions are greatly appreciated

Hey, congrats on your AS results they are great. I can say that if you keep it up you'll probably walk into any of those universities. I'm a Cardiff student though and would definitely recommend it, perfectly tailored for students and the courses are really well respected being a Russell Group uni.

Really would be worth a look!

Congrats again!

Thanks very much friend! you sure the uni's won't be slightly reluctant to accept me considering I got 2 B's at AS? (even if my A2 predictions are decent)

I don't know what the requirements are to get an university place at Bath or Brisdol, but the fact that you have worked in a laboratory and collected experiences is a good recommendation for the university, better than the good marks in your AS results in my opinion which are good as well. I would say you have good chances. Good luck!

I think most universities focus on your predicted grades - and A*AA I think should meet all their entrance requirements. They will look at your AS results too - however they don't know how close you were to getting an A in Biology so would probably believe your teachers when they predict you an A in it...
I would say that you have a very good chance at most of those universities. Only one you will probably struggle with is Oxford since most applicants would have achieved straight As at AS - however remember they still have the interview and possibly an admissions test, so if you do very well on these you would still be in with a chance of an offer.
Bear in mind that these universities would be giving you conditional offers - so make sure you feel confident at meeting your predicted grades, particularly since you are applying to top universities who are less likely to be lenient on grades on results day.
