    So I'm 19 years old, and decided to make an independent UCAS application to university of Exeter to do History and Politics. However the entry requirements are AAB to ABB. In my A levels I've recieved ABC. (C in philosophy. )

    I was wondering if i was wasting my time. I mean I went to an underperforming college in an under privelaged area, and I was diagnosed with high functioning autism just before my A level exams which meant I could have recieved extra time and my own room to help lessen my anxiety, which i didn't receive. (I didn't sleep throughout the whole exam period)

    I've also attended lectures about history in my own time and I'm a member of some political pressure groups.

    So I was wondering if i was wasting my time applying there?

    I would definitely talk to someone in the Admissions office because there is a chance they could give you a contextual offer and take into consideration your situation.
