    I got my AS grades today, and I have been extremely disappointed in the grades that I have got:
    -A in Mathematics
    -B in Geography
    -C in Further Maths
    -D in Physics (I'm dropping Physics)

    It has made me question whether I will be able to get an offer from my target universities: Warwick, Durham, LSE, UCL, Bath or Bristol.
    What do you guys think?

    You will be able to get grade predictions of one greater than your AS results, so A*ABC. What you need to do is go and have a look at the Uni webpages and see what type of grade offers they make. You will be safe with anything up to AAB, even AAA if you can sweet-talk a teacher into predicting you that grade and resitting an exam :yep:

    I was really hoping to do Economics, which is A*AA, I'm planning on getting my Geography remarked as I was only a few marks off an A, and I'm planning on resitting two of the Further Maths modules. What would the chance of me getting a place if my predicted grades were AAA, but I achieved A*AA?

    Unfortunately, only the Uni giving the offer and your teachers will be able to answer that question :sadnod:

    It's going to be difficult to tell your chances of getting into your unis because they depend on so many factors which you don't have much control over. How many people apply, the general standard of applicants, etc. will all affect your chances. The only thing you can do to make sure your chance of getting into them is maximised, is to simply work hard and smash your results
