    Would you be looking to doing any retakes? If you are and you're predicted the required grades you can have a shot at Leeds For other unis, you'd have to do your own research via the UCAS website

    I would say do some retakes

    I got an offer from Leeds yesterday and my AS grades were terrible; CDEE
    However I'm resitting basically all my AS exams and coursework alongside my A2 and I've managed to get my predicted grades up to ABB. Still chuffed I got an offer for such a competitive course though!

    If you really want to go to Leeds (like I do) then I'd say retake. Or if you don't then I guess you'll have to do some research on other unis! Hope this was somehow helpful!

    Hi can I ask what course that was for? I'm applying for economics but the asking grade is AAA and I am only predicted AAB.

    My course is Broadcast Journalism and entry requirements are AAB, but as I said - my predictions are ABB. I found out from the admissions department that they'd give me an offer because of my experience at a radio station. So I guess it's up to the individual departments!
    If say apply anyway and see what happens. If you really want Leeds just make sure you have a fabulous personal statement!
    Hope this is helpful!
