    Hiya folks,

    So I think I may have butchered my future!! Yay! I've been wanting to do law or journalism for a while now, but my AS results weren't fabulous..

    English Lit and Language - B
    Health and Social Care - C (Two B's and a U.. go me!)
    History - D (Resitting the exam I failed)

    Do you reckon these grades can be made into something reasonable? I'm genuinely quite worried lol, I'm not 100% sure how much AS results actually matter. I'm from Northern Ireland so our system is different to England atm, which makes me 100x more confused! Can someone who knows things please help a gal out xx

    Since you're doing retakes you can probably get those grades up to BBB. For context, ABB will get you into Cardiff which according to the Guardian is the best uni in the UK for journalism. However I think for Law you'll need at least AAB.

    oh wow, well done!!! my teachers preached all year that they'd never met anybody who resat and got a better grade and it's sort of knocked my confidence with all of the insisting they've done the past year that we will not survive if we have to do a resit on top of our A2s lol!

    I think they're saying that so you can work hard. Make sure you work hard and question everything you learn, oh and a tip; print out a sheet which tells you what you content you need to know. To be honest this year was a little stressful as I had 16 exams
