    Do you have to carry on all 4 AS Levels? Most colleges encourage you to drop one - if you do, you might be able to achieve A*A*A* rather than A*A*AB as you can focus on three A levels rather than four.

    Last year I really struggled with motivation and ended up leaving everything to the last minute, barely revising for my AS levels at all. In the end I came out with AABB which obviously isn't terrible, but I was disappointed as I knew I could do much better and I couldn't be proud of myself because I was lazy and put in no work. My teachers have predicted me AABB again, but I was hoping to apply to Cambridge where the requirements are A*A*A. I believe that I can at least achieve A*A*BB and possibly even A*A*AB as I am having tutoring for all of my subjects this year. I don't know what to do as my school is very strict about predicted grades. I feel like my teachers now underestimate my ability when in reality I just didn't put in any effort; I could have done much better. What should I do?
    An AABB prediction will pretty much rule you out for NatSci at Cambridge.

    The most realistic route will be to achieve, or ideally exceed, the typical offer and apply post A-level.

    So apply to 5 other unis this cycle, and then see what happens on Results Day.
