Bad AS grades

    • Thread Starter

    Hello, so these were my AS grades

    Psychology (linear so doesn't count)- C
    Geography (going to retake my AS modules)- C
    Biology (linear so doesn't count)- D (was one mark off a C how annoying)
    French (which i dropped)- E

    I really had a bad year last year and I have made the decision to turn these grades around. I achieved 5A*s and 6 As at GCSE, so how much do you think these grades will hinder my chances of getting into uni? My teachers have said they are going to predict me what i need- which is AAA, and have told me that they know i can do it. But how much do you think my grades will hinder my chances for getting into uni? do you think they will care considering they don't really count? Also, I am doing an EPQ this year, which i am aiming for an A in.

    I am applying for BA geography at Exeter (my first choice), Birmingham, Royal Holloway, Southampton and UEA, if that information helps haha.
