    i am predicted CC in alevel physics and chemistry.
    I was originally doing phy,chem and bio but i got U in bio AS and so could not continue it.
    Which unis are available with my current situation.
    I dont mind doing a foundation year (most likely going to do a foundation year)
    can i apply for a foundation year and if i get good grades in august can i switch my course to the bsc degree so i dont have to take a foundation year.

    Has anyone been accepted at aston with 2 alevels. This is where i really want to go. I emailed them but they said my best hope is clearing..If im lucky.

    For my possible AS i could retake AS biology privately.

    This books ranks courses by grades required, usually find it at careers, library or in a bookshop. Just have a peek.

    You are better off either doing an A level in one year or taking a gap and resitting.

    It says 3 A levels ABB- BBB so you are way out with CC. Not realistic.
    The lowest reasonable traiff is the 112-127 UCAS point level. Most people have much higher.
    I have doubts that Aston would accept you on 2 A levels.. Possible, but you are talking about being the only one.

    They have a foundation course, which you can try for, which has no set grades..

    There wasnt a set requirement I could see. there looks like only one general foundation. So yes it was for the school. Why dont you do maths or CS? Its up to them but I would be doing enough qualifications so I stood a chance of meeting the requirement.

    unfortunately my sixth form college will not allow me to do another A level as it is a 2 year course.
    They also no longer do 1 year courses such as AS level.
    Thats why i might retake biology privately

    Why are you doing hard A levels when all they want is any A level not an AS.

    when i first stated alevels i knew i would go into science at uni. so I picked the 3 sciences for alevel.
    i then decided to do comp sci at the end of the year and so i couldn't change subjects.
    so i decided to continue the 3 sciences and ended getting CCU at AS level.
    At my sixth form you need a D to carry on your A level.
    Hence i could only carry on 2.
