    If I got CCC I'd join the military.

    Depending on what you want to do, choice of university matters more/less. Pretty much always has SOME effect, but how much varies. e.g. for medicine it doesn't matter a huge deal as you're a doctor at the end of the day, and have comparable skills to the other medics. For most subjects it matters a fair bit for your career prospects afterwards. If you're interested in further study, it matters less (though better universities are still advantageous), though degree classification, references and (for PhDs) your research topics/ideas are most important. Employers frequently DO ask for A level grades when you apply for internships and some graduate positions but this is less important the more experience you gain. But try your hardest to get top grades, speaking from experience you'll regret it a lot if you end up somewhere 'worse' than you wanted to be because you didn't do enough revision. As for psychology in particular, I'm afraid I don't know anything about it.

    For psychology you're pretty safe no matter where you go, as is relatively well regulated.
    Just may find the transition to uni a bit harder than maybe if you did better. BBB is good though, aim high!
    Don't worry too much, just do as best you can and will fall in place.
    Let me know if you want to know about psychology, or related careers etc.

    I'm not sure about your field (psychology) but I'll tell you one thing.
    Wherever you go, you have to work hard, get experience, build your skills & make sure sure you're employable.
