I need advice on whether its worth applying to the university course. I got my AS results yesterday and they were:B in politics,C in Economics,D in psychology and an E in history. My teachers said they were pretty good considering the rough year I've had but I'm just worrying now because I was looking at doing Politics and International Relations with a year in North America at the University of Kent. Last year they were asking for BBB which I could have easily done by resitting the few exams I messed up on but they've increased it to ABB now. Is it even worth applying for that course? I don't know if it'll be possible for me to get an A in any of my subjects even if I resit some of my exams but I'm not sure if the university would be lenient and let me in on a BBB.

Are you restricted to the University of Kent? There are a number of universities offering Politics and International Relations that may have lower entry requirements, and entry requirements don't always reflect the quality of the course.

It's always worth applying, in my opinion. Entry requirements aren't always set in stone.

Not restricted but it's the one I like the look of the most and a bunch of other factors as well. If I get BBB that should still get me considered.

Ah, OK. Then it's definitely worth applying - make sure your teachers are happy with your predicted grades for A2 and boss those resits! I'd also recommend going to as many open days as you can, if you haven't done that already; it's easy to decide you like the look of a course on the website, but nothing beats first-hand experience of the university and the people who'll be teaching you. Good luck!
