    Hey Guys!

    Basically i recieved my AS results to be honest i was quite pleased with them except one But im glad ive made it through to second year.

    English Literature -A
    Sociology- C (3 marks away from a B)!!
    Law- C
    History- E

    Basically im going to retake one Law paper to increase my final grade to a B and the same with Sociology so hopefuly will end up with ABB .
    But i will decline History. My questions are basically:

    Q) What do i need to say to Universities, that im retaking 2 papers to improve my grade?
    Q) Do Universites just want 3 Alevels as the final, and if they do ask for a fourth AS is it better for me to say yes i did do a 4th AS level in History.
