    So I'm currently in year 13, and have applied to university, and looking at putting Leicester(ABB is my offer) as my first choice and Oxford brookes(BBC is my offer) as my second.
    Let me give you a bit more background, in my GCSE's I got all A's and A*'s, but when it came to college I got lazy. When it came to my AS levels I started revising a month before which I do not recommend and took a very laid back approach. As a result I came out with ACC which then became my predictions for ucas. However one of the c's didn't count because Economics has changed to the new a level, I am also retaking 2 maths exams which was the other C to hopefully bring it up.
    Despite my AS results through mocks this year I now have predictions of AAB. I believe that with the changes I have made to my work ethic I am able to achieve AAA.
    My question is if I achieve AAA or above in my A levels this year is it worth me disregarding my choice of Leicester and losing my offer to then go through clearing and apply for either Bath ( A*AA to get in, I visited in first year and loved but didn't apply because of my predictions) or Birmingham (AAA to get in, I applied but got declined because of my predictions)?

    In all honesty, it depends where you want to go. If you've researched Bath and Birmingham and you know you achieve those marks, you stand a good chance of getting in. Just remember though, it's not just about the university that requires the best grades, it's the overall experience you're looking for as well.
