    In previous threads I have mentioned about how I didn't do so well in my AS. I have now recieved my estimated final grades and I'm freaking the hell out. I'm predicted a B in History, a B in Maths and AN E in Chemistry. I really wanted to do Optometrey but had changed my mind to orthoptics (because opotometry is unrealistic) but now my dreams are crushed. I am so unsure as to what to do. I've been thinking about Law but I still need good grades. I dont know what to do with my life.

    apply to some universities that want higher than BBE, but aren't very competitive so will still accept you - even if you miss their offer

    I got a D in biology but still applying to study genetics- just give it a go and work your backside off this year. Worst case scenario, you call up in clearing to get a space
