    Depends whether you can persuade your teachers to predict you good grades but chances are your predictions will be like CCC m8 :/

    Have you considered doing a BTEC or something to increase your chances of getting into uni, or is this simply a case of you not working hard enough this year ( sorry to be blunt ) cause if so then your best option would be to apply during a gap year after you get your grades as otherwise if you apply to unis with CCC or even CCB you're gonna have very limited options.

    Bad AS grades don't mean you're going to do bad overall either cause you can always retake units and I think the shock of the grades will help motivate you to work harder - I found this was the case for one of my subjects as I got a B for AS which I know most people would be happy with but I need an A for uni so getting that grade made me realise I needed to do a LOT more work for A2 and that's what I did !

    Well I'd drop biology because you'd still need maths for civil engineering. You'd be most likely predicted BBC. But say if you're literally touching the grade boundaries where you got a C in, you may have a chance of being predicted an A. You'll just need to make sure your teacher believes in you first and that you can achieve an A grade. If he doesn't think your capable still, take the prediction (I think most likely BBC) and still apply to the unis you want to go too. Your chances applying to LSE and imperial etc would be minimal, but a Russell would still be on the cards. Just focus on getting the grades next year, as a matter of fact just stop reading this and start your A2 work as well as prepare for your AS resits already.

    Teachers usually predict one grade above your AS result, so you'd be predicted BBBC (most likely.) If you convince your teachers you're capable of achieving more through performing well in early year class tests, it's entirely possible to be predicted an A from a C
