    Hey everyone,

    Basically, I read online that some universities take your AS grades into account and others don't because there are people out there who didn't do any AS exams, so to keep it fair they don't require them and base their offers on GCSE grades, bmat/ukcat grades and teacher's predictions etc.

    BUT if you do badly in your AS grades- surely they will see that and thus take it into account and allow it to deter them from offering you a place.
    This is something that both Oxford and UCL seem to be saying on various websites- that they both don't require AS grades or use them- but that bad AS grades may affect the process.

    What does that mean? You either don't use them or you do. I feel stressed because my AS grades were not quite what I hoped that they would be, and I am not sure if I am able to apply to the universities that I wanted to, because I am unsure as to where they stand with AS levels and therefore, what my chances of securing a place are.

    Email the universities and check with them.
