    So my AS results didn't go great I started with taking only 3 a levels and I got C in film studies which was 4 marks off a B, C in English literature which was 2 marks off a B and an E in history due to getting a U in my Britain exam and a C in Nazi Germany.

    My school want me to drop history but I really want to continue and retake the U !

    If I got a C in my retake and got a C overall for AS history, could I get a B overall for A2?

    Also my other subjects my teachers think I can get a B overall in film studies and a C overall for English but I need ABB for university ?
    Am I being unrealistic ?

    It's possible. If you got the minimum UMS at AS for a C (120), then you would need to get an A overall (160 UMS) at A2 to get a B overall.

    Nope. You were really close to getting Bs in Film Studies and English, and I'm sure you can improve on your History grade. It's only September now so you have the full year ahead of you to study hard and get your grades.
