    I am applying for Biomedical science Bsc.

    My firm choice is St George's university and my insurance choice is Brunel University.

    To get in to St George's university you are required to obtain grades ABB in your A levels including Biology, Chemistry and one other subject, but excluding General Studies during Summer 2016.

    To get into Brunel University you are required to get grades BBB.

    After sitting AS resits and A2 exams I think I am going to get a B in Biology, a C in Chemistry and an E in Maths. I have already received an A* for EPQ this year by checking the project Q website. Will this be enough to go into university?

    I am feeling nervous because I don't know if they will let me do a third year for retaking A levels, especially since the specifications are changing?

    If they've specified a grade offer, it appears that you would be too far off with those grades. Do they offer foundation years? If so, you could ask that you be considered for those. (In answer to your question, you might not go to those universities but from someone who got BEE, you can still get into university somewhere somehow).

    If we include that A* in your EPQ you would have 360 UCAS points which quite a few universities would gladly accept. So yes, you can still go to university. Have a look at different university websites and find one that appeals to you.

    Whether or not it is enough to get into your firm or insurance, no one knows.

    I believe what you say is most likely to be true. But I don't want to do clearing because usually you get to lower courses. I am more likely to retake a levels again and hope to get all A*s. Now I know where I went wrong. I wasn't studying consistently and I was cramming. All I need to do is wait for the results day and I will see what happens.

    It wouldnt hurt to look at clearing at least just in case you spot a course at a uni you do want to go to? But yes if all fails then you can resit so no need to panic
