    Results come out tomorrow and I'm already a stressed out mess. I didn't work as hard as I should've this year and that's my fault, I know my grades will reflect this.

    I would like to study optometry or pharmacy at Aston university and their requirements stand at AAA/ABB - however I do know someone who got in to optom with 3 Bs.

    My AS predicted grades were A*ABB ( A* is in Welsh bacc which is basically a qualification in bs) but I know for a fact I have not reached these at all, I've probably got CCB/ CCC. (maybe even a D but let's not tread on that territory)


    So, my question is, is it possible to get ABB from grades as low as CCC?
    I plan to resit 4 AS exams alongside 6 A2 exams- I have already started studying.

    Thank you

    I thought AS doesn't count to anything anymore?
