    I think you could get into some good unis with that. Sure not amazing grades overall, but you got an A in maths which is the important one. I think it's possible you could have a shot at Bristol if you can impress them with your personal statement.

    yea u might be right because of the A in maths but he certainly needs a very good personal statement. and believe me or not, do it as soon as u can

    what do you think you could get at A2? Like Psyk says, Maths is the important one, so you could have a look at some top Unis with those grades especially if you pulled one or both of your other grades up to a B. I would think about York (but I'm biased), Southampton, Bristol, Ediburgh, etc, etc.

    I disagree. He could get predicted ABB and get accepted at better unis. Even if he doesn't make it the unis above will most probably have places in clearing so nothing will be lost.

    Well he might not be able to meet his predicted grades, as A2 is generally a lot harder than AS, unless of course he did no revision whatsoever in AS.

    Thanks for all your replies.
    I must admint I was a bit carried away with Maths and neglected the other 2 subjects, especially ICT. I will be retaking 2 papers in both Biology and ICT this coming January.

    Although Bristol is an amazing university, I have to be realistic.. AAB.. hmm.. not to sure about that. =/

    After some careful thought i've come up with a list, potentially my 5 uni's, please tell me what you think. Should i keep?

    Southampton - ABB
    Surrey - BBB
    Royal Holloway - ABC/BBB
    Reading - BBB
    Aston - BBB-BCC

    My offer from Bristol was equivalent to ABB. And Southampton didn't even give me an offer, so don't count Bristol out.

    In as I got BBDD (maths, physics, chemistry, biology), I asked a lecturer who had worked at aberystwith, york and is now lecturing at newcastle if he could help me choose 6 uni's.

    This is the list;

    Newcastle BCC
    Aberdeen CCC
    Aberythwith 280 points
    Edinburgh BBB
    Lancaster ABB
    Nottingham BBB

    I took newcastle as firm and aberdeen as insuarance. I got in A2 BBB so Im off to newcastle.

    You really should check out which are the theoretical courses, places like st andrews were all maths and Iv already had enough of statistics..

    also what area would you like to specialise in, I would like to specialise later in graphics, in ray tracing and virtiual reality which newcastle has a suite for.

    I think you need to do a bit more research on the courses and also what the city is like..

    they're both generally around the same ranking, so not much difference there.
    i've heard the social life at brunel is better than QM, but QM is still with UoL, so thats worth something =S
