    Hello everyone,
    I have the predicted grades of BBC (B's in Biology & History) & a C in French.
    At university I want to do French & German.
    My choices are:
    King's (very aspirational) AAB
    Aston ABB
    Queen Mary's BBB
    Portsmouth BBC
    Westminister BCC

    Idk if these are decent enough, since I really think I can do better & hopefully go through adjustment but then again the demand for languages has declined..

    Ideally, change one of your top choices to one that asks lower grades. You've picked 2 courses that you may get offers from, one that you most likely won't, and 2 that you could if they're feeling kind. That's really not a good mix - especially as your lowest grade is the subject that you want to study. Everything considered, you'd be doing well to end up with 2 offers with those choices.

    For Aston, it's ABB-BBB so it's aspirational but it's not too unrealistic I thought?

    The BBB will be for people with mitigating circumstances. If this applies to you then it's not too awful a choice, but is still unlikely. If you have no mitigating circumstances then they're likely to ask for an A in a language and you currently have a C.
