    Hello all,

    I'm new here! I just wondered if I could have some advice and guidance. I received my AS Level results, which consisted of a C in Sociology, C in Psychology, C in English Literature and a B in English Language. Initially, I was quite upset with my results, but my teachers told me they were solid foundations to work on. However, I see lots of my classmates receiving primarily A's and B's, which is making me question if my results really are okay, even though I tried as hard as I could all year!

    I'm hoping to study English Literature or English Language at university, and I'm not sure what type of A Level results I am able to come out with at the end of Year 13, or which universities I should be thinking about applying to with these results. I am going to be dropping sociology.

    Please could I have some guidance on which grades I can achieve at A Level with these AS Levels? Thank you very much.

    Hi! I've just finished Lower sixth too!
    I guess you can retake any modules you didn't do well in, and if you are only a few marks off a B you could have your paper remarked!
    Go on which?university... It gives you a list of unis with their entry requirements and acceptance rate )
    I think you can easily get BBB, and if you retake some module you could get to ABB or AAB. Ask your teachers for guidance, after all, it's their job x
