    Has anyone who got BBC... grades or similar at AS applied successfully to a course that required AAA?

    I got BCC at AS and then BBC after A2... The highest I applied for was BBB.

    I got ABC at AS and got offers of AAA accepted, no point setting your heart on it though, unless you have a realistic chance of getting 3 A's. I settled for one of my offer of ABB and got the grades

    Daughter got AS B - Maths & Biology C - Chemistry & Physics
    Dropped Chemistry, retook Modules in maths and Physics, predicted AAA.

    Applied & got offers for Lancaster AAA-AAB, Nottingham AAA-AAB, Leeds AAA, York AAA & Sussex ABB All Mphys in Theoretical Physics
    However decided to Firm Sussex and was accepted when she got BBC at A2 (same as AS)

    TBH aiming high for at least one choice is no bad thing if you especially like the uni/course
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
