    Say if you get a poor grade in Maths e.g. D, but your other subjects are strong A and B (ICT and economics) and your personal statement is extremely good. These subjects are at AS, would you have any chance of getting an offer from Russell uni's or nah??

    Depends entirely on the course you are applying for. And keep in mind there are many excellent universities not in the RG. The RG is primarily a lobbying organisation, not necessarily a sign of excellence.

    I was in your position last year. Got BBDE at AS with an E in maths, but got 5/5 offers for AAB predicted grades for unis with AAB-BBB offers (All econ).
    3/5 of the Uni's were Russel Group.
