Yesterday I found out I only managed a B in chemistry, a C in biology and maths, and an E in physics. I want to apply for Imperial College and The University of York, both want A*AA-AAA at A2 (which I will be predicted). Just wondering if anyone can give me any advice; would I have a chance to get in to these universities with my (awful) AS grades, should I resit this year? I don't know what to do, please help

Imperial College I'd say is incredibly unlikely. It's one of the most competitive universities in the country and one of the most highly ranked in the world - so applying for Chemistry with a B in AS Chemistry isn't going to look particularly impressive. Most successful applicants will have AAA at AS. So whilst by all means apply (after all you've got a 0% chance of getting in if you don't apply) I'd say you've got a very, very low chance of getting into ICL even with those predicted grades.
I don't know enough about York to really give an answer to that, sorry.
If you really want to get into top universities, maybe consider applying post-A2? If you get BBC at AS, most universities would not really believe a prediction of A*AA/AAA. However, if you do achieve something like that and apply then, it's much less of a risk for the uni.Last edited by Chlorophile; 15-08-2014 at 20:40.

what are your UMS scores? Definitely won't get into imperial, an offer from York seems unlikely.
Also you sound like you're sure you'll get the AAA prediction?
