I would say only AAA, even though I only need AAB to get into a uni, I just hate a B in my results, ruins the flow :cool: lol.

I would like all A grades, but we don't always get what we want... Could easily be happy with AAAAABb - one of the As being to avoid the shame of not getting an A in general studies... well, not that its easy lol

Would be very happy with ABB.
BBC is most realistic though

I'd be happy with ABC, as it meets my offers, but I could probably get ABB (a B in French) if I worked a bit harder.

AAA. I don't deserve an 'A' in History; unless I actually read something between now and the next exam, I probably won't get one. But I sure as heck could use one.

I'd love to get AAA (when the time comes, I'm still doing AS's), but I'd be happy with AAB. For AS's I'd probably be happy with AAAB, with the B in Chemistry, but I want to get AAAA to be honest. Not taking the exam in Critical Thinking until June 2006 (for some reason my school run this as a 2-year AS) and I want at least a B in GCSE Spanish. Hmm I don't want much. Going to have to work a lot harder than I am doing to get them though...

Ideally - 3As! AAB at a push, I could cope with a B in Sociology

BBC, as thats the min. I need. BBB / ABB pref tho.

Is it just me, or does TSR seem to reflect, on the whole, the highest A-level students?

We just seem to have a large number of Oxbridge/AAA etc students; little talk about lesser unis such as....... Oxford Brookes, Manchester Met, Nottingham Trent etc.

I know various people at my school that are applying to 'lesser' uni's such as Surrey etc.

Yet, the vast majority on here appear to be after AAA/AAB for Oxbridge/Notts/Manchester etc etc.

Or is just me?

Well, if you think about it, the sort of people who use websites like this are the ones who want to do well, so it makes sense that their results are better than average.

And also I think TSR oxbridgey peeps are attracted the the forums, I mean there are whole sub forums for each brill uni. Also I find there's no one in my school in my position so it's nice to have a chat with people who are going through the same stress!

AAAAB. I'd be happy with a B in Music...I don't really like it at all

Obviously, ideally AAAAA, but that's unlikely

Realistically (really hope I don't sound like a big-headed b**h) if I don't get AAAA, I'll be really irritated because all my teachers have said they expect it so if I don't get it, it means I've messed up somewhere along the way!
