    I received my AS results and I'm quite frankly really disappointed in myself; I got BBBD (B's in History, Geography and Politics and a D in Economics- which came as a big shock to me!)

    So, I'll definitely be dropping Economics, but do I have any chance of getting into a good university? I want to do International Relation, however there would be no point of going through with this, if I don't get into a respectable university.

    Do I stand of chance of getting into universities like Exeter, Lancaster, Bath etc... please be frank with me


    Absolutely. Typically, you will be predicted one grade above what you acheieved at AS-level (especially if you are on the new linear syllabus). I think you are worrying over nothing. Work hard next year, and I am sure you will smash your targets!
