    I have got the ABB needed for my course, but the subject I'm studying was a B, (graphics) and I got an A in a much more academic subject, History, which annoys me.
    I was no more than 14UMS in any subject from being a grade higher and of course I'd have been elated with A*AA, but now with these grades despite getting in I can't help but feel disappointed...

    In a week's time you won't be giving it a second thought. Go and celebrate getting in.

    I know its difficult when you dont meet your expectations but you should still be very proud of those grades

    There is a big difference between A-Level style assessment and university assessment, so don't go into uni thinking you are on the back foot, there is nothing to stop you getting top grades in Graphics at uni.*

    Your A-levels are like your GCSEs, you won't give them any thought or weighting in a months/years time. They are only a tool to get into university, nothing more nothing less.

    You should be very proud of those results, you obviously worked very hard.
    I would suggest you celebrate all that hard work, and look forward to enrolling on your perfect course.

    Well done!

    That's the spirit. I was in the exact same position as you and it hasn't made a single jot of difference in my life or career.

    It's not about the grades specifically, more in meeting the standards you set yourself. I'd have felt exactly the same had I been predicted CCC and got CDD, it's not a matter of intelligence, and as I previously said, I feel a lot better about it now, and I'm thankful not to have to deal with clearing or any of that.
