University application

So I am doing the CIE board A level exams where AS level makes up 40% and A2 makes up 60% of the whole A levels. My AS grades were horrendous. I got CDD but my A2 mocks have been straight A's.

I am retaking 2 of my AS subjects alongside my A2 exams and have been studying for months for them and am pretty confident for my A2.

I am thinking of going for law and most of the unis I am eyeing require minimum AAB.

I heard from a friend that for CIE board applicants they reject you straight up if your AS level grades are low as the predicted grades are taken from the AS level exams. I am wondering if this is true?

What do I do if my actual grades meet or exceed the AAB requirement?

Unis dont look at AS levels because not all UK applicants now take them.
Each school has a different method of devising predicted A level grades - talk to your own school about this.
