    Do maths psychology and politics and as they are getting rid of AS' only did an AS in politics and got a B one off an A for it. Also did an additional as general studies and crit papers and got CC despite revising. I have good GCSE'S I'm just worried because of my bad crit and gen studs which I don't do to A2 my predicted will seem unrealistic. Bear in mind I go to a grammar.schopl that is very careful when predicting.

    You’re in the last cohort where AS’s do kinda matter. HOWEVER it looks like your AS results were outliers and I think your teachers may emphasise that. How good was your year 12 class performance and GCSE performance in general?

    It’s difficult, universities may find those predictions unrealistic and be more hesitant to give you offers.

    There’s nothing to say you won’t achieve those grades, but it doesn’t look like it on paper. Still, no harm in applying.

    My advice would to definitely get your predicted lowered(from personal experience). When I applied for uni I only got one out of my five offers. I wrote to the other unis asking why I didn’t get in and they said it was partly due to my predicted grades not correlating with my AS and school performance. What are the standard offers for the unis your applying to? My advice would be to match that and perhaps reconsider
