    Hiya, I'm an offer holder for geography and I'm not sure if I'll get the grades for Exeter as I've been quite lazy this year

    Not sure if I should take the risk so I was wondering what your course is, the offer and what grades you actually got accepted on

    My offer is A*AC (my predicted grades) but I haven't done a lot of work this year so I'm not sure if I should risk it or take a lower offer from another uni

    thanks

    What A levels do you do?

    I'd take the risk, because I'm sure you'd be extremely pissed off if you managed A*AC

    I do Geography, History and Biology
    I'm hoping for an A in geography and History (maybe an A* in geography if I'm lucky) and a C in biology (I hate it but if there's a miracle, I might get a B) :confused::confused:

    I'd really try because to get an offer for a C in biology is very lucky, they require most to get AAB.

    Yeah, i know people have their strengths and weaknesses in subjects, but Biology really isn't too hard if you put the effort and time into learning the key concepts / terminology. Getting a B in Biology should be much easier than an A* in Geography, simply because everyone tends to loose silly marks somewhere or another, regardless of how much you know of the subject, and it can often be hard to ensure you still remain above 90%.
