    I got AABC in AS, A in Econ, A in Geo, B in English Lit and... C in History.
    I got an A in the one paper and D in the other which I don't really understand but obviously must've messed up. So obviously I'll have to resit the one paper. I do Welsh Bac too. I will drop English Lit.
    For gcse I got 6a* and 6a.

    Where can I realistically apply?
    I'll be predicted at least A*AA.

    Hi, I'm not sure I understand why you've been predicted ABB? Unless your As were very borderline and the school doesn't want to predict an A? Anyways. Congrats on your AS!
    A* is geo with 94% UMS. A econ which was highish and the other A in history after resitting the D module.

    I was reading on the LSE website that they look at AS a lot so maybe it would be unwise applying there?

    I thought UCL would be out of my league too because it's so competitive

    AAB at AS to A*AA is reasonable. Don't know why you'd go from AAAA to ABB though...

    Are these your official UCAS predictions? These aren't done until around October time at most schools. Teachers can't predict accurately enough from AS and just a few weeks of A2 work.

    Why are you dropping Lit and not History?

    And why are you getting predicted an A for a subject you got a C in at AS?

    And you won't need to resit because History is a reformed subject.

    As explained I messed up the one exam and got a D, where as I got an A in the other. Throughout the year I was consistently on an A grade in history.

    Yes I do, not every part of the UK has reformed subjects. Wales is sticking to the old system.

    You really are underselling yourself, you are good enough to have a shot at lse, UCL and Oxford, especially if you went to a state school

    As long as you work hard! I got ABBC at AS- the C in history as well (dropped one of the B grade subjects) and got A*AA at A2

    You may benefit from taking a gap year and then apply to university with your set A level grades, therefore, they wont look at your AS. Maybe then spend some time on your personal statement, learn a language?
