    I really want to apply to uni and the course I am wanting to study wants AAA or A*AB or A*A*C as the grades to get in.
    I have found out that exam boards don't give you A* anymore. So I am going to have to get an A in all my A level subjects.
    I was just wondering how would you achieve this realistically?
    On past papers I am getting ABB.

    Incorrect. If you're with any of the large exam boards then A*s are still a possibility but at A-Level, not AS. The whole top and bottom of A-Levels is hard work, if you get your head down you can realistically achieve AAA.

    Hard work my good friend, its such a basic idea but it really does make a difference!
