    My GCSE's: A*A*A*AABBBBCCC
    My AS's: AAAU history/philosophy/literature/maths respectively

    So I messed up big time on maths, I love the subject - I'm just not good at it! I want to do history at uni, and my dad still seems to think I have a shot (he's a Cambridge graduate... = pressure!!), but it all seems way too optimistic to me.

    Thoughts? Has ANYONE ever got in after failing a subject? lol..

    Considering the U is for a subject you're not applying for, I don't see why you shouldn't try?

    Drop the U and continue with the 3's into A2. You only need 3 for uni. You want to keep as much time as you can to concentrate on your main subjects as the workload in A2 doubles.
