    I am currently repeating year 12, but doing different subjects from the ones I did last year, with the exception of psychology. I got a B in my AS and am hoping to get an A in my A2. When applying for uni will this grade count? for example, if I have an AAB offer does this mean I only need one more A and one more B next year from my other 3 subjects? I'm very confused

    In many cases yes it will count.

    You have to declare all complete qualifications - so the finished qualification will be on your application.

    Some universities ask that you achieve the A level grades specified within 2 years - in this case then there might be some issue over repeating Yr12 but if you're taking 3 new subjects as well as Psychology then you would be able to meet that condition with those three.

    Your best bet is to contact the universities you're interested in and ask whether they'd be likely to make you an offer for just your pending 3 grades or whether they'd count your completed grade towards your offer conditions.
