    Here is a breakdown of my AS -

    Maths (A) 254 UMS
    Physics (B)
    English Language (C)

    As you can tell I only took 3 AS subjects. This wasn't a choice of my own, but actually a choice of my school because I got CDDE last year when I didnt try an tey wouldn't let me do 4 AS subjects again as they claimed 'I couldn't handle it'. I could handle it but didnt apply myself last year.

    Both Physics and English are reformed A-Levels, and therefore the grades don't count towards anything other than expected grades next year.

    Does the fact I have resat the year weaken my university applications?
    What grades should I expect to achieve next year?

    You're probably looking at ABB-AAA depending on how much you apply yourself and work at the Linear A-Levels

    I can get an A* in maths, it is the only subject that I can actually do confidently.

    Regarding the other two subjects, am I looking at BB or AB or AA if I try hard enough, because theoretically, A*A* is possible... but highly improbable.
