    I got a D in AS biology (OCR A reformed one) and now I'm confident of my learning style I'm sure I can get that up to a C/B next year. Do I still apply for genetics at...
    Swansea (ABB-BBB) 1st
    UEA (ABB) 2nd
    Aberystwyth (BBB-BBC)
    Chester (BBC-BCC)
    Nottingham (ABB- this one is an iffy)

    My mum just sat me down to give me a "realization" talk aka she doesn't think I can achieve it

    I think most of the more knowledgeable members are concentrating on people whose A2s didn't go to plan, and people who are not 100% sure don't want to give you incorrect advice.

    Aw thank you! I think that if you feel confident that you can get the grade then go for it. One of my friends got a D in AS Biology and managed to get it up to a B and she got accepted into her first choice. If you do decide to go for it then just make sure that your Biology teacher predicts you a B/C. Universities will be a lot more likely to give you an offer if you are predicted to achieve that B/C. The teacher will probably recommend doing a resit and that can really help your overall grade Good luck!!!

    I got a CCC last year and overall in biology, maths and physics, and I just got into Swansea genetics as my firm choice even with an offer of BBB, so it's always worth a shot
