    Hi, I know I've posted a lot over the past week but I need some advice...

    Basically I got CDEEU at AS, should have started earlier but like a couple of others thought I could pull it out of the bag like at GCSE and started too late, I'm now taking to A2 the C (English language) D ( Spanish) and E (Psychology), I want to do Spanish and German at Uni which requires an AAB and I'm not sure whether or not to apply as it is something I've always wanted to study and my mum is literally no help by telling me to find another course, which is pretty hard since I've had my heart set on this for years. 2/3 of my courses are part of the newly reformed a levels so my AS grades wont count (C,E) so I don't feel the point in resitting them, but I will be resitting the Spanish (D) to get it up to atleast a B/A grade. I don't know whether to defer for a year and apply when I know I have got the grades or just apply now and hope for the best, I've got into my head that no University will accept me with these awful grades, but I am willing to work harder than ever next year to achieve my full potential, does anybody have any suggestions?

    From your results it doesn't look like you'll be predicted anything close to AAB, therefore I doubt you'll be successful applying to uni this year. The better option is to wait a year and apply for 2018 entry with your achieved grades
