    Hello TSR.

    Basically, I got ACD today in my AS levels. I know I can do much better than that next year. However, is it possible for me to still apply to Unis that want BBB for example.

    Cheers

    I applied to unis with BCCC at AS and got offers of AAA,AAB and ABB from several unis. Put down AAA as firm but didn't make it as i overloaded and sat the exam poorly (did 11 exams), got into ABB course

    I got BDDU for my AS exams last year and ended up with AAAB this year xD You could definitely achieve BBB with those grades if you do a few retakes

    Wow you smashed it this year. Tbh, I didn't try that hard this year because none of my AS grades count anyway.. But next year I will work much harder. Thanks for the help.

    It really depends on what your teachers will predict you based on your AS results and your mid-term assessments.

    Yes but be sensible and apply to a high optimistic uni,a good and high uni that you could reach with work,then a uni that you could get to with the work your doing now, then two slightly lower unis. e.g i applied to unis ranging from Russel group AAA-BBC non Russel group and got all offers.Thanks! whats the course you want to do?
