    I got
    A for Sociology
    B for Politics
    E for Economics

    I didn't struggle during the year in Economics I was getting B's, C's and maybe the occasional A, however I got really nervous and my mind went blank during the exam. The good thing is that Economics doesn't count as it is the new A level. However, I want to apply for Birmingham University that has an entry requirement of ABB and Kent which has BBB entry requirement I was also looking at the KPMG school leaver's programme which has the same entry requirements (ABB). Do you think I have a chance to get an offer as my other 2 subjects are good?

    Hey, yes I still think you have a good chance. Your predicted grades could potentially be A*AB/AAB/AAC which are all really good. When you go back to college, tell your economics teacher what happened in the exam. They should understand that you don't usually get Es anyway so it would be silly of them to predict you an E or a D if they have seen that you can do much better.
    Having an amazing personal statement will help you a lot as well.
    As long as you are confident that you'll be able to achieve a B in economics by the end of next year, I wouldn't worry too much! Even though you have achieved an E in the AS exam, you'll now have a clean slate when you start studying for your A-level exams

    No problem I am in a similar situation myself as I got a D in my AS physics this year so I have been worrying a lot about how it will affect my chance of getting offers from universities, but I guess all we can do work super hard next year to show that we can do much better!
