    Hi,
    I went to my school's sixth form in 2014 and didn't achieve the best AS results, mainly because I was extremely unhappy there and chose the wrong subjects (I spent the entire year trying to drop physics as I knew I'd fail but they didn't let me)... I got:
    B - History
    D - Religious Studies
    E - Economics
    U - Physics
    However, I then moved sixth forms and achieved so much better in my AS's, I got:
    A - History
    A - Sociology
    A - Economics
    B - Psychology

    I continued with History, Sociology, and Psychology. Also, my GCSE results weren't the best (1A*, 2A's, 5B's, 2C's and 1D). Will the fact that I restarted effect my offers from unis? I want to do History and Politics and are applying to AAA - BBB unis.
    Thank you!

    Short answer, NO! Unless you are applying for Medicine, Dentistry or Veterinary Medicine, universities won't care and will see your grade jump as a big achievement. I got bbbbccddf in my GCSE's, BCDU in my first attempt at AS, AAAB at my second attempt at AS, and A*A*A at A2. I'm now at Warwick studying Politics, so go figure!

    Thank you! I was just panicking myself and doubting the unis I'm applying to, that they were too high, never going to accept me etc... Thank you again!
