    I would be interested to hear the answer.

    If there is a threshold then make sure you come within it and that may even mean dropping your A levels if you feel the results are destined t be poor.

    The other option is getting your school to agree to let you redo year 13.
    Two A levels are often not enough to get into uni, so if you proceed with that then a further A level of a BTEC national may be needed or alternatively consider foundation courses.
