I got BBCD for AS and this was a very disappointing result. A move to a new country at the beginning of my as year caused a lot of distractions resulting in me not working to my full potential.
I want to apply to Kings, UCL, queen mary etc for Economics.
My teachers said they will still predict me AAB/AAA.
is it worth applying this year at all or should i wait till my a level results?
and if i do apply this year should i apply to unis that require lower results, if so which ones?

I only got ACB my first year got offers from UNI's requiring AAB, as long as you don't apply for a course with grades above your predicted grades.

I got ABBC at AS and got an offer for A*AA (also my predicted and then my final grades). From what I saw yesterday all my friends A2 results were 2-5 grades higher than their AS results and unis will know this happens. My point is don't be deterred from aiming high from a disappointing set of AS results
