    Hey,
    I'm an A2 student studying Maths, Physics and Economics. I got a D in Maths, a B in Economics and I'm doing Physics at the end of the two years (linear). I'm redoing two AS maths modules to hopefully pull my grade up.
    My predicted grades are A (Economics) and two C's in Maths and Physics. I want to know of theres any realistic chance of me getting into top universities e.g. Nottingham, Loughborough, Birms, Southampton etc etc
    Any feedback is appreciated

    hey, what do you want to study? the entrance at loughborough and uea is ABB(for most subjects) and they accept general studies which is a super easy A level so you could pick that up? Southampton have an amazing outreach programme which takes into consideration contextual factors and if you qualify 2 grades lower http://www.southampton.ac.uk/student...ications.page?, this is the same with leeds http://www.leeds.ac.uk/info/128005/a...e_admissions/2 so AAB would become BBB, you can also email your teachers to boost your C predictions to B's and convince them you can do it and emphasise how important it is for you to go to uni and you just want someone to believe in you many other uni's offer contextual offers normally if there is two different requirements the lower one takes into account context so yes you do

    Loughborough is A*AA. With the A* in Maths or Physics.

    And the others will be similar.

    Unless you are confident you will be able to achieve A*AA there's really not much point aiming at this level I'm afraid.

    There are good universities asking for lower requirements. You can use TSR's UniMatch to find them
