    Hi! I have an offer for ABB or get an A grade with a BTEC ( Distinction, Merit)

    My predicted grades are:
    Economics- B
    English lit- B
    Geography- B
    BTEC Business- Distinction Distinction

    I really like this university but I really don't think I can get A grade, do you think they'd let me in if I got these grades as my BTEC is a grade up, or would it be a waste and I won't get in?

    A B is pretty close to an A

    This may sound mad, and it probably is, but why not focus your revision "mainly" around 1 subject and try get an A in that? This way you have your BTEC and A grade?

    Hey depends on the university but most times on results day if you’ve got pretty close to your offer like ABB instead of AAB you should be fine unless it’s a very competitive course like economics at LSE
