I want to do economics at a good uni (such as bath or Nottingham) but I've screwed up my maths AS. I got two Cs and an E. I got two As in English and economics and a C in physics but I'm going to drop physics. I know I'm capable of a higher grade in maths and hope to get a tutor next year. How much will my AS maths grade matter for applying to Uni and getting offers?
How much do AS results matter? Watch

They matter a fair amount, I'd say, as universities use them as a guide as to how well you're doing academically as obviously they won't have your A Levels yet. However, I think they also look at current Working At Grades so if you show improvement through the year that indicate good A Levels, they take that into account

A lot of unis like maths for economics- they prefer A grades - if ur looking to go to a top uni-
However some accept B grades- do your research, ask unis, ask teachers, ask professionals. Exhaust your options.
