Okay so I've finally got my university choices. I keep changing the last few but I think I'm there and ready to go. I'm kind of anxious about offers though. I need:
Newcastle AAB (A in Eng Lit)
Nottingham AAB (A in Eng lit OR Lang)
Leicester ABB- BBB (B in Eng Lit OR lang)
Loughborough ABB (B in Eng)
Lancaster ABB (A or B in Eng)
I'm fairly confident I can get an A in English Language. I'm hoping for one in Lit...
I've just got rid of my insurance Portsmouth which was BBB- BCD.
In my AS levels I got:
English Language: B (100% in one, A for cwk and an E in another which I'm retaking)
English Literature: C (which I've declined to retake in January).
Any thoughts? I know there are a lot of these posts so sorry to inflict another on the boards. Thanks in advance :-)
Yes, I would pick a AAA course too. I think that you are capable of a higher tier uni
If the offer is for Lit OR Lang does that mean that you've applied for a Lit/Lang course? In that case, the offers are often lower than you would expect to achieve, but that doesn't compromise the course.
The only unis you might have a problem with are Newcastle and Nottingham because they ask for an A in English, but it's definitely worth a try and you should be fine with the others.
Thanks everyone for your help and reassurance! :-) I think AAA is a bit high. Not because I don't think I could achieve it (I am HOPING to) but my AS grades put me at a disadvantage for such a competitive course. Also Newcastle is my ultimate favourite so keeping my fingers crossed for that! I'm saving one option so I can submit a late application in march after my retake should I need to.
:-) Thanks again xxx
