    Hi, I'm currently in the process of deciding my five university options for 2017 entry.
    I received seven As one A* and one B and an E (don't ask) for my GSCEs
    For my AS Grades I got two As one in sociology and psychology but I got a C in Biology and unfortunately a U in chemistry
    I am applying for psychology for all of my uni choices and I was wondering if it was worth applying to UCL or Kings with entry requirements of around AAA when I have a C in biology for AS
    I'm also pretty sure my biology teacher is going to predict me a B/C for end of A2

    I really hope you can help me with this, it's much appreciated.

    Its an odd year since people are applying with a mix of old and new qualifications. Make sure you get good predictions.
