    Hi all,
    I got 3 Cs and 1 B in my AS levels, so I haven't exactly covered myself in glory this year. However my college has predicted me ABB for A2.
    I'm hoping to apply to a few courses which match these predictions (with the other selections being lower) however I'm worried that my poor AS results will mean I would be rejected by my first choices.
    For what its worth my GCSes were good (As and A*s) so does anyone know what my AS levels could mean for me.
    Sorry for the long post.

    You might well get rejected by your first choices, but you don't lose anything substantial by applying to a couple of ABB courses.

    It seems that many universities put more emphasis on predicted grades than ASs achieved, especially this year with the A-level reforms kicking in.

    Whether that's a sensible decision by them remains to be seen.

    So if you have predictions in line with offer requirements you are likely to get the offers. But you are being sensible to have some insurance options too.
