    I got E's and D's at A level. I didn't reach the requirement for my undergrad uni but they still accepted my offer.

    Now I'm doing a Master Degree and achieving 80+ in marks equalling to a distinction..

    All I would say is do your best and don't worry about poor grades.

    Sorry,

    but also if you do get bad grades, reflect on them and try to understand what went wrong so you can improve

    First attempt at A2: I got BCC, miles off my firm and insurance offers. Took a gap year, retook my A2's, during which time I got offers from my original firm & insurance uni plus others, by March I had a guarenteed place at uni waiting for me for the following year.
