Hello TSR, I need help.
Okay so, 2015-2016 YEAR 12 was a shambles, I was so caught up in partying and clubbing and therefore I didn't study. I didn't complete coursework. I didn't try in lessons, and for some reason assumed I'd wing my results to get good enough grades to get into a semi-decent uni to study architecture. Oh boy was I wrong. When results day came along in August 2016, the look of shame my parents gave me for receiving grades of DDU... well it still haunts me to this day.
Anyway, following this I travelled over the summer and became really motivated to educate myself and concentrate on my studies. I restarted college, taking the exact same courses as before (Maths, 3D and Geography, respectively) and began revising, taking extra notes, buying revision booklets and spending all my free time in the library for geography or in the workshop for 3D.
Fast forward to now, I've completed my maths mocks and been given predicted first year grades for my linear modules of Geography and 3D.
Predicted grades for AS:
3D Design - A
Geography - A
Maths - B
Bare in mind I didn't actually try for first year and I'm trying extremely hard for the restart.
I want to study Architecture and have looked at the following Unis;
UCL, KENT, Reading & De Montfort
Are these realistic choices, or am I just kidding myself here after my failed first year :/
What uni can I realistically aim for? Watch

If you genuinely think you can get AAB at AS then there's no reason not to aim for top unis, facts are your original AS results don't really matter that much as long as you improve them.

If you want to study architecture, bear in mind that Reading is not RIBA approved. This means that you won't have the qualifications to go on to do the RIBA Part 2 masters to become a qualified architect and move onto RIBA Part 3.
Also, if you feel that you can go on a do very well on your AS, then those universities are good; you can always change them afterwards.
I failed my AS levels first time and got better results afterwards, I now have all of my university offers, all from top universities.
