    i've had a very difficult, emotional year that has lead to me going from 100% attendance and quite good grades at GCSE (A*AAAAABB) to BBD and 80% attendance, 5 months into my first year at college. I was wondering if these grades and levels of attendance are taken into account in my uni application? i would ask my tutor but she's only in one day a week.

    Your grades at the end of Year 12 will inform your predictions so try to tuen them around before June. Does school/college know about your problems? If so, they might give you some allowance.

    Your referee might want to include about you having a hard time, beyond that, I'm not aware of any way this might have an impact. Also, BBD is a pretty decent place to be when you're only 5 months into A Levels.

    prospective universities will only see your predicted grades which are entered at the beginning of year 13, as well as grades for any AS levels you take, so you have plenty of time to improve.

    your attendance will not be seen by universities, however your school will write a reference for you where they can indicate that you have had a difficult year, however if they have been unimpressed with your work ethic/attendance this may also be reflected in the reference.
