    Would you class these grades as "good" or just "average"?

    You can drop the D, continue with ABC and focus on turning that C into a B which isn't that difficult, especially if you resit a module from the C subject. And ABB is not bad by the real world standard (not the TSR's one).
    Yeah I'm going to drop the D. One thing I didn't mention was that the B and C grades were actually new spec so won't count towards my overall grade which is good. So I guess the overall picture isn't too bad but if your just judging the grades alone there not too great.

    Good advice and yeah I see where your coming from in terms of being in between. I guess it is kind of the equivalent of BBB which I would say was better than average as it would likely get you into a top 50 uni.

    AS grades don't matter much when you're applying to uni (my friend had ABCD just like you and he got an offer from UCL) as you're personal statement and predicted grades. Btw don't look at univerisity rankings for your options much as they vary every year and are different for each website e.g thecompleteunigide, qs world rankings. So all the best and fingers crossed you get into your uni ;P

    Cheers dude. I will be hoping to get AAB predicted out of them as B was 4 marks of A and C was close as well. Then looking at Unis like Queens Mary London, Liverpool and Surrey etc. all around AAB-ABB. Don't UCL require like A*AA? how did your friend get close to those with his predicted grades?

    His predicted grades were A*A*A and he got an interview from oxford (sadly he didn't get an offer). It's all up to you, if you can show how determined you are and persuade your teachers than I'm sure they will predict you high grades.
