    Hi all, I have made various threads about my AS performance this year but I still need some reassurance .

    I got BCD in Business studies, Maths and Physics (respectively).

    I really need advice as I want to get into a Russell Group and I'm looking at foundation courses, and if I manage to pull of AAB/ABB/ABC then I could potentially do adjustment.

    I just need reassurance of how its possible, and would find tips useful. I will be resitting my M1 module, and potentially Phys3 coursework or Physics Unit 1, alongside my A2. Pleaseee help.

    Thank you.

    First of all, you haven't completely lost direction, you are on track but clearly your performance indicates that you need to improve your revision techniques. I'm assuming you are continuing on to A2 and if that's so you need to buckle down; seriously, the step up from AS to A2 is not to be underestimated you need to commit to your studies a whole lot more, set your goals and go about achieving them without procrastinating. It won't be easy because you are planning to resit and your subjects aren't exactly easy, but it's not impossible to get AAB/ABB in your case you just need to prove to yourself that you're capable of taking responsibility and doing whatever means possible to get those high grades.
    I would suggest researching the unis and the course you want to apply to now, resit your exams to improve grades and begin working on a flawless personal statement.
    I do however think you might encounter some difficulty in having those high A2 predictions that Russell group unis will want so be sure to apply to lower grade requirements as well, and hopefully if you stick to a rigorous year of focused revision you may do better than expected and can go in to adjustment.
    The most important piece of advice I'm going to give you is to focus, so many people regret their lack of revision structure after difficult exams and with no resit options available now, you'll have a whole load in one go in summer, so it's crucial to keep that steady pace throughout A2, it's not easy but you'll love yourself for it when you get what you want at the end. Trust me! there's no better feeling!
    All the best
