I'd like to do Arabic & Politics at university.
I'm predicted A*AA in my A-levels, so I exceed the standard entry requirements of AAB, but I looked at the minimum requirements for where I want to go, and it says "an A at GCSE in a language other than English"... I only got a B in French.
To hopefully compensate for this, I've just taken up AS French in Year 13 on the premise that an AS Level would outweigh that of a GCSE....
(I've contacted the university admissions but they have yet to get back to me, and my anxiety is high atm, ya feel?)
1) Do you think this will be acceptable?
2) How would I put it on my UCAS application, because they can't predict what grade I might get until after mock exams in December, and my application has to be sent by January??
Will AS French be okay? Watch

I'd be surprised if they said an AS in French wouldn't make up for your B grade at GCSE. If your teachers can't reasonably predict a grade then they should leave it blank. Ask your teacher to mention why they can't give you a prediction in their reference.Last edited by Snufkin; 25-09-2016 at 19:27.
