    Hi Guys so I got my AS Results yesterday and they were pretty bad.

    I got E for my C1 and D1 exam, C for EPQ and B for Chinese. Im taking Economic business and history as well. I was wondering if its possible to turn that E into a B before teachers enter the predicted grades into UCAS and if its worth redoing EPQ as I have to resit all my Math exams next year (C1,C2,C3,C4,S1,D1)

    I dont know if they could improve what they were going to to predict you, but if you put in a lot of work and learn from the previoud year, you could turn that into a B or an A with resits.

    I think youd have to try your best to score highly in class tests/mocks or however they predict your grade as well as show in class that you're really oeen to do well.

    Good luck!

    If you let your teachers know you're planning on working much harder this year and resitting all your bad exams then they might give you a higher predicted grade, but I'm guessing that the highest they'll probably predict you is a C. If that happens then you can always take a gap year and apply to uni with your actual grades instead of your predicted grades
