    Hi, i want to study economics and I got really bad AS results, CCU. I don't know what happened as I was predicted A grades in both the C's (eco and geography) but they are were close to a B. I believe i messed and I know i can get the top grades for A2 as im gunna work super hard and I can get the teachers of the C grades to predict me a B or an A. The U subject im not sure about but i might be able to get a C or B prediction for A2 if im lucky and I must say that a third year or gap year is not possible. I have had many huge personal/home problems which have affected my AS that I can explain so would uni's take that into account ? Im really shocked and i can't resit the year but i intend to resit modules of the U subject to bring it up to alteast a B. I wanted to get into warwick but that seems like a dream now. Would they still offer if i explain my bad AS results and the personal reasons behind them. thanks everyone

    Just retake all your as modules along with your a2 modules and apply next year when you have got the grades
