    As long as you have a C in English and Maths you should be fine I assume, what do you want to apply for?

    Medicine and more competitive courses would take them into consideration, other courses not so much

    I think if you preform well in an interview, with grades like that I'm sure it can be negotiable

    of course you can. It shows MASSIVE improvements, universities will definitely be looking to give you offers. However top universities may require B in maths and english. They'll tell you when you apply via UCAS.

    Even if this is the case you could just easily retake english and maths during your second year, which is A LOT easier to score high grades (especially if you're getting AAA at AS level)

    You're either applying extremely late if you've already got your AS results or have sat and received your AS results extremely early. Which one?

    Sat and received really early! I've had a bit of an unconventional approach to education for a variety of reasons. But I'm studying my A2s in September

    You should be fine then, provided you have minimum C in Maths and English
