my daughter is a bright student and, although we don't have the financial means, only because of her academic merits she won places in independent schools for her GCSEs and A Levels. She would love to do Economics at Oxford, her AS exams were in Maths, Further Maths, Economics and Physics. She obtained very high A* in Maths and Further Maths(100% in three exams), also in Economics a high A but only a B in Physics. She had already considered dropping that subject and she will indeed, do you think that if she continues with the good performance in the other three A Levels, she can still be considered for a place in Economics at Oxford? In other words, how important is a AS with a B? She can't understand what happened since she had won, early in the year, an award in the Physics Olympiads. Your advice will be greatly appreciated.
