Alright, don't laugh... I got CDE in Biology, Maths and Physics.

I'm retaking them all hoping to get AAA, however I may only be predicted ABB/BBB (which is more than fair tbh).

I normally get A/B in Biology and Maths mock exams however I just crumbled in the real exams, Physics I deserve what I got.

I was wondering if it were possible to get an offer from a decent uni like Manchester, Queen Mary, Surrey or Southampton for an economics related course which are normally at AAB/ABB.

On all their websites it says it accepts retakes but I'm worried they'll just straight up reject me after seeing my grades. Other retakers probably only have to go up 1 or 2 grades, whereas I need an overhaul.

My personal statement is looking good but it's just the grades I am worried about

only serious answers please

Just ring them and talk to admissions. they can say yay or nay which should be enough reassurance. Your referee can also say something to make it look more credible. You can also sometimes get privately assessed.

In any event just get the grades and you can go eventually through clearing or even another year later.
