    Hello everyone, thanks a lot for opening the thread.

    I would like to know which universites I can go to with my AS results. (Edexcel)

    I got, ABCC.

    A- for Economics
    B-for Accounting
    C- for Business Studies and Maths.

    I am positive I can get an A for AS math if I re-sit in January, as I did well for C1 and C2 but messed up S1.

    Though how do I apply then? Can I apply after my Jan re-sits? Wont that be to late (As results are out in mid-march). Or a friend of mine was saying that I can apply before that and put the results as pending. How does that work, I sort off dont understand that.

    I am hoping to do Management. Is there any chance I can get into the top unis (lse,warwick.bath,ucl or kcl). I am also an International Student.

    Replies will be greatly appreciated.

    Regards

    You'd have to apply in January or so, or earlier, and put pending for your results.

    I'm not too sure about management courses, but you'd certainly have a chance with top unis like Warwick. However, I think your chances would be much better if you could get that Accounting A level up to an A, too. And Business studies up to a B, as Cs look a bit bad, you know.

    But yeah, go for it.

    (Oh, just noticed LSE - not sure about that though. Might be a bit too competitive.)

    hmmm those are some good unis will be really hard for you to get in and especially if you can't get a good set of predictions for your grades but you will have to get those grades up a lot higher than what you are sitting on now.

    Your subjects might be a problem with LSE because you're doing both Business Studies and Accounting (both on the black list).

    The deadline is 15th January, so you won't have your resit results when you apply. If you decline your grades, you can put them as pending on your UCAS forms so unis won't see them. To be honest, those unis seem a little out of reach with ABCC and 2 blacklisted subjects, but if you decline your grades and get good predictions, you'd probably have a reasonable chance with most of them, as long as your personal statement and reference are good.

    If your grades aren't cashed in, you don't need to decline them.
