    Hi so basically i got my AS RESULTS
    AABB A's in lit and psychology bs in english lang and history (remarking lang as only a few marks off an A)
    The course i want to apply for is AAB (LIT)
    what will i be predicted at A level
    Does this mean i cant drop Psychology (as i'll lose one of the two A's needed?) Cos i want to drop psychology (i dont like it) but that means i'll go into A2 with ABB POSSIBLY AAB(if lang remark is successful)
    So if i end up going in with ABB will the uni reject me
    Help im so confused?
    Do i have to keep Psychology as it's my second A grade?

    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    In my AS I received a B in English Language and Literature (joint course, 1 mark from an A), and B's in Human Biology and Film Studies and an E in Maths. The way my school did it was we just spoke to our teachers and they basically told us if our expectations were realistic so I ended up predicted AAB (dropped maths) and managed to get offers for some good English Literature courses (Loughborough, Uni of Birmingham) so I don't see why you shouldn't be able to either.

    You don't have to keep psychology, although if you achieved an A in it you're obviously doing something right! If you really hate it I would talk to your teachers and parents about dropping it, but if you think it's tolerable and you can maintain the A at A-level I think it's definitely worth considering to keep doing it. Obviously if you get an offer for an AAB course and achieve ABB at the end of your A-Levels there is probably a decent chance they will accept you but you need to achieve the AAB to guarantee your place on the course, so you need to think about what you think you will realistically achieve next year. Congrats on your results though you did really well and I'm sure you will be successful!

    Most teachers can be persuaded to predict you one above your achieved AS grade, as long as they are convinced you will do the work. Therefore, even if you drop Psychology you will end up with a prediction from ABB-A*AA, most likely AAA or AAB.
