    I need to get ABB in order to study English at university next autumn. I reckon I got an A* in Politics and an A in English, but an E in French. Given that the general entry requirement for my course is AAB-BBB and the uni usually allows students to drop a grade if it's their firm choice (its my insurance), what are my chances of getting in? (A*AE evens out to BBB.)

    Nobody can tell you. It depends on too many things: whether the university requires a base line of B across all subjects; how many other people did badly in their exams; whether they think they can do better than you in Clearing and so on. English is a very over-subscribed subject and they are unlikely to be short of candidates. Only they can tell you if they are prepared to take you, and they can't tell you this until they have seen everybody's exam results, and those papers won't have been marked yet in a lot of cases anyway.
