    I got these AS results

    English lit - B (4 marks off an A)

    Biology - B (4 marks off an A)

    History - B (4 marks off an A)

    Chemistry - C (9 marks off a B)

    I was planning on retaking all my chemistry exams and a module in each biology, english and history to boost these results next year.

    I want to study English literature with a year abroad so can I still apply to universities like Warwick (entry requirements are AAA) and Exeter (entry requirements are A*AA-AAB) and East Anglia (entry requirements AAB) and Birmingham (entry requirements AAB) with a chance of getting an offer?

    Thank you!

    The fact that you are achieving BBB now, means your predicted grades could very easily be AAA (so long as your teachers agree). If you have a strong personal statement, reference and your teachers actually predict you those grades, don't not apply to those places and sell yourself short!

    Bear in mind that you will already have loads of exams next June, and you are planning on adding another 5 or 6 from resits... That's a lot, and it will hinder you next year.

    It completely depends on what your predicted grades will be.

    Definitely. Just put the work in
