    I'm having a bit of a panic. For my AS grades I got CDDU which was completely unexpected as I was targeted A's and B's Chester was going to be my first choice for 2015, but now I'm worried I won't get an offer, never mind end up there next year. Any advice on whether to even bother applying or the likely hood of me receiving an offer would be helpful!

    Hi

    This time last year I was in a similar position to you. I got CCDU for my AS results and was really disheartened. However I applied to study Law with Criminology and got all of my offers back (Chester included which I accepted as my firm). I worked harder this year and achieved the grades/points I needed (280 points including grades BCC), so I wouldn't worry too much because it's definitely possible for you to get offers with those grades. AS results aren't the be-all and end-all!
    One thing I would suggest though is that when you're applying to uni, make sure you have a strong personal statement highlighting your other strengths - not just academically - to show that your grades don't define you and how intelligent/capable you are.

    Good luck!
