The 'new' A levels and how unis now look at your grades to offer you a place? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I'm doig English lit, geography, history and classical civ for A level in September but I'm really confused about the new A levels, what 'grade' do you show the unis? As I know the AS level doesn't count towards the A level and I'm worried they use your GCSe results? I didn't get all A's and all A*'s in my GCSE's so what do they use?

    Well even with the old system you applied with your predicted A2 grades so I don't think that will change unless you are doing it all at the end of Year 13 and don't have AS grades at the end of Year 12. I'm not sure what will happen then, maybe GCSE results will play a bigger part. Maybe they'll still do it with predicted grades.
