    Hi guys, I just received my AS results yesterday (I was on holiday) and I am utterly disappointed. I achieved:

    Maths - B
    Economics - D
    Music - B
    English Lit - C

    I am planning on getting my Economics re-marked since I am 2 off a C. I am thoroughly disappointed with my results and was wondering if it was possible if I had an opportunity to still do Psychology at University with entry requirements ranging from AAB-BBB (for example)?

    (I am planning on resitting two maths modules and for my music I may get the composition module re-marked with the whole class since all of these were marked low, and Economics and English were reformed A-levels).

    (Also my GCSE results were 5A*s and 7As if this provides more contextual information on my position academically).

    The universities will take into account AS grades and so you may have a lesser chance, but what really matters is getting AAB predictions so the universities think you're on track to getting higher grades. If you drop your D subject you'll have BBC which is enough to get you AAB predictions, but you'll have to talk to your teachers to make sure they give you the predictions you need. Then, just work until you actually get those grades!

    Thanks for your reply. I am quite determined to continue Economics, regardless if the grade bumps up or not. But yeah, I think I'll just aim for higher predictions and really get my head around core concepts
