    Hi guys i achieved BBC in my A levels High B's in Geography and Economics, and a C in government politics (which i completed in one year). I had massive family issues going on during this entire year and it 100% affected my performance. I even had to go to the doctor because i was literally depressed. I believe i did reasonably well under the circumstances. However the universities i want to apply to are Kings, St.Andrews, LSE and loughborough for International relations. I will be applying to 2 courses at Kings. I am on a gap year and will be doing a ton of work experience and will be preparing for a few resits. My school will be hopefully predicting me AAB MAYBE AAA. (due to the fact that i literally have a year to revise for 4 exams). Now i know that these unis will consider my application but will they give me an offer. Of course you dont know, but im asking for your opinion. My first choice is Kings (well LSE but i highly doubt they will give me an offer, but as they say if you dont apply you will never get an offer!). So will they look down on me due to the grades? Or will they be sympathetic due to my circumstances. In addition i taught myself the A2 for government and politics as the AS classes clashed with A2 classes.
