Hello, I'm so disappointing with my AS results with predicted AAAB
but I got..
A - Maths ( B in D1) - Edexcel
B - Business studies - AQA
C - Computing - AQA
U - ICT - I will drop it --"
It's my first exam in UK and I'm international student my English language may not good enough for written exam T_T.
I would like to go to study computer science with business studies/management at university of Bath/Birmingham....
Then I plan to take Further Math for AS and A2 and resit for computing exam again.
Is it possible for me to get the offer and AAA grade next year?
P.S. I practice programming to gain advantage on my personal statement, does that help? and I really worry that I have only short volunteer work relevant to this degree.
Bad AS results for Computer Science degree watch

What a coincidence. Finally someone else like me haha. I was predicted an A in my Computer Science (AQA), came out with a C (Borderline D).
My Computer Science teacher rang me up telling me she couldn't believe I'd done so badly, and that for Uni there is nothing to worry about because she will still write a predicted A on my UCAS/Uni application. So, in short, as long as your predicted grades remain good you should be fine! Especially someone who has proved their aptitude in maths, and seen as though you failed ICT you have no need to declare it on your application. (Or so I hear).

I think you will be alright. A in maths for AS is very good and is arguably more important than computing a level. Are you doing further maths AS/A2? Either way, that will also help you a lot during your application process ! (Chances are that they won't make it part of your entry requirement though, but may help your claim if you miss your offer in the future)
Unis make a lot more offers than they have places. And with each person likely using their 5 spots, its tough on their behalf so its really common for unis to make an offer to people who have below par grades / predictions as there is a greater chance they will firm them compared to an A*A*A* type of student. More than possible to get AAA - Though doesnt birmingham/bath require something like AAB/ABB?
Ps: CS does not require work exp, so your fine ^^
