    Hi

    I received my AS results yesterday (14th August 2014) and I am quite disappointed.

    I got BBCC, B's in Biology and Geography and C's in English Lit and Chemistry. I want to apply to do a course at Uni that's ABB, is it possible for teachers to predict me ABB still?

    Thanks

    Yep . It's more than possible . Teachers are usually happy to predict one grade above what you achieved at AS :yep: . Though do speak to them each individually and assess whether they are happy for that to happen

    Hey don't worry about it. I got ABCC but my predicted grades for A2 are AAB. It honestly depends if you just flopped on the day, but yeah, speaking to your teachers about your prospects is the most important thing considering they are the ones who will make the predictions in the end. E-mail them if you can!

    Thank you both The annoying thing is that I know I could have got ABC or ABB if I'd worked harder. Just hope I can persuade my teachers now!

    Hi yes I received CCD in my first year and was predicted ABB for A2. Depends how determined and motivated you are and you need to show your tutors this, do extra work/ essays etc. Good luck

    Showed my teachers I was determined in the start of term for A2, showed them I was motivated to achieve good grades. I got BBC in the end which is disappointing as I was aiming for ABB. ****ed up in my papers work hard for your grades, if I could go back i would work alot harder to achieve the best. Good luck
