    I really want to go to university, not sure where and need some good ideas...
    Basically I achieved A*BB in my A-levels last year, and wasn't so happy with one of the B's cause I didn't work hard enough (I got 0.25% off an A in that overall A level) so I'm retaking this subject this year to try for an A*. (I got 100% in one exam and a low C in the other lol (bad day) so it averaged at a B. )

    If I get the A* I'm hoping for so my results are A*A*B where do I have the ability to apply?
    My A levels are Art (A*) French (B) and Geography (after retake will be A or A*)
    I'm considering a combined course with French and Geography?
    Are combined courses good or not and why?

    If not, I'd want to do a Geography course (more human angled) with a 4th year so there'd be one year in an abroad placement.

    Your problem will be easily solved if you go on the university you're interest in website and check the entry requirements. I'd heavily recommend in you reading the course structure and other stuff each universities offer (e.g. facilities, opportunities such as study abroad).

    Combined courses are for those interested in learning two or more subject altogether, so if you truly do not have enough interest in on of these, it'd be a pain. Advantages and disadvantages depends entirely only what you want to do after uni, and also things you want to learn.
