    Hello,

    First of all let me say that I know this is all my own fault, etc, etc.
    CONTEXT:
    I received my A Levels results this summer just gone, getting BCC in Maths, Biology, Chemistry (respectively). This was massively disappointing to me since I wanted to study Dentistry and obviously needed AAA or higher. I've decided Dentistry is probably not a viable option anymore and I'm retaking all my subjects this year whilst also working and travelling (so a gap year with exams at the end). So far I haven't applied to any unis and was thinking it was best to just wait till results day and apply through clearing for Maths or Economics.

    My question is; should I apply now with my set of actual results or should I wait? (I have no predicted results since I'm sitting them independently of my school)
    & Will I be able to study economics with my subject choices

    PS I'm aiming for 3 As at the end of this year (min)

    First check if you have the right subject combo for maths or economics. Clearing is open to check what unis are in it. Yes it's probably a good idea to apply when you have your results as with these grades you will be eligible to apply to very different unis compared to with AAA.
