I was planning to apply for politics at Bath, Warwick & Edinburgh, all of which require AAA, which I'm confident I can get at A2. I expect that I got A's in economics and law at AS, but I'm worried i might have missed the grade in govpol. Given that the AS is 50% of the overall A level grade, is it still wise to apply to these three? Which ones am i most likely to get an offer from?
Will a B in AS politics be too much of a problem for politics at uni? watch

Nobody can say which one (if any) are likely to accept you, but if you're predicted AAA then I don't think having a B at AS will be an issue. As long as you have at least one back up choice that you'd be happy to go to if you don't get AAA then I think it's safe to apply to those three universities.

I don't think it will be an issue. I got a B in AS Politics and got an A in the A Level overall. I would suggest perhaps applying for at least one AAB course (or even ABB) as a back up.
