    I'm currently completing my UCAS application but I'm concerned that my AS grades aren't good enough to get into university.

    I got a B in English, C in Psychology and an E in Biology and the unis I'm looking at have requirements of AAB-BBB.

    Is there still a chance of getting in or do I need to start thinking about retaking the year?

    What are your teachers predicting your final grades will be? If you have a close prediction, You might be considered by a BBB uni but less likely for AAB. Be sensible with your applications and include a few more realistic courses that match your predicted grades. There is no need to retake the year. If you apply and get no suitable offers you might still pick up a place at a good uni in clearing/adjustment if your final grades show the improvement you are hoping for (but don't be tempted to rush into a poorly researched last minute choice). If nothing suitable comes up then take a year out, earn some money, have some fun, learn to shop and cook on a student budget and apply again the following year.

    I'm pretty much sure all of her subjects are linear.
