    My first year of college did not end to well, I really didn't take my AS exams too seriously because 3 of them were linear so in my head I had this running dialogue that they therefore didn't count for anything.

    I'm studying Maths, Physics, Computer Science and I was previously studying Chemistry but I dropped that this year.

    Any amount of time I did commit to revising for my AS exams (which was very little) I put into Maths as I wanted a good result in that really bad because that was the only one that wasn't linear.

    My final results were:
    Maths B
    Physics D
    Computer Science D
    Chemistry E

    I wasn't to fussed about my poor results until it suddenly dawned on me that these are the results I am going to have to send off to uni's. I'm looking to study Engineering at uni and most of the courses I have been looking at are BBC or BBB.

    I honestly believe that if I don't just slack this year and really put the work in I could achieve these results in my overall A Level results but the uni's aren't going to know that?

    What advice do people have? Should I wait to apply next year instead?

    You can try this year, for the experience if nothing else, but you might be best advised to apply next year with (hopefully) better achieved grades.
