    Hi, so i collected my AS results Thursday and unfortunately the grades i achieved were under target.
    I got a C in English Literature and Language.
    I got D in History, and another D in Psychology.
    I was meant to get B's and C's, so i am quite disappointed. I was told that i would be able to resit certain exams so i would end up with CCC in my AS results, however i was wondering from this what would be my estimated A-Level results? As i was told i would be only able to achieve BCC.
    Any help or advice would be lovely!

    You are worth a lot more than the grades you got on a piece of paper so please dont let those grades decide your fate. Also there are other options for example Btecs so its not completely the end of the world if you dont get the grades. You did the best that you could and if you have not i guess you have learnt your lesson that its though out there so be prepared...Remember life does not go in a straight line so dont stress of over exam results...as it is not all about going to Cambridge or oxford-you dont have to go there to make something good out of your life so do what suits you.

    Always Remember "Winners are to busy to be sad, to positive to be doubtful, to optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated."

    Edit: It is not all about a piece of paper with your name on it.

    you could end up with BBB or AAA or A*A*A if you put work hard from now and with sitting resits! anything's possible if you work hard - request a copy of your exam scripts to find out where you went wrong, go through exam papers, mark schemes and reports and also ask your teachers for any help! Good Luck!

    Not sure how your school works but at my school they would only predict you one grade higher than you achieved at AS level as that's all they believed you could realistically improve by. You need to speak to your teachers really to sort out your predictions and if needed to convince them to predict you what you want them to predict you, but remember at the end of the day the predictions and university offers you achieve are meaningless if you don't hit the grades so think carefully and realistically about where you apply next year. I wish you all the best in your resits and exams and hope you get into somewhere you want to go next year! Remember if you do get higher than you expected next year you can always enter adjustment and apply for a higher uni!

    It is very difficult to determine your next years grades based on just an overall grade from this year.

    For example you may have a D in psychology but it depends if its a D that is 2 UMS off of a C or if it is on the boundary of a D.

    It may be that one of the units you are resitting could end up an A which would of course increase your overall UMS and the likelihood of getting a better grade.

    All you can do is try your best. I wouldn't recommend resitting too many exams as it will put a lot of pressure on you next summer. There is no reason that with a lot of revision and hard work that you cant take those Ds and Cs to Bs and As but it will be hard work.
