    I am doing a third year due to sporting commitments first year and only taking two As's then. Also not the best results.

    I am expecting AB in my two A-levels and B in my As at the end of my second year.

    This year I am finishing the two A2's and picking up an extra As.

    I have a whole year to get my grades up, and i expect to come out with AAA (A/B in the As).

    Will Uni's likely give me conditional offers that require AAA as although I won't be at that, I am confident I will have that by the end of next year.

    Advice needed!

    from what you have said, i dont think universities tend to give personalised offers based on ability, if the course needs AAA that will more than likely be the offer. However, if you have already done A levels when applying, that is a different case.

    Sorry. I'll make this clear!

    First year only did two As's. Maths B Psychology B

    Second year I spent less time ding the sport I train for, and focussed on work. Continued Maths and expected an A. Continued Psychology and expected a B. Picked up Economics and expected an A/B

    I now am really keen to do well in my studies and have quit the sport I used to.

    This year I will be doing Economics A2 (therefore my 3rd A2) and Further Maths As.

    Now when I apply with two A2's and an As, expected ABB will Uni's that demand AAA likely give me a conditional offer. As by the end of next year, I think I will be able to have AAA (ie over 3 years)

    EDIT: I am applying for Maths and Economics joint degree...

    If you're predicted grades are good enough, then you might get the offer.

    Nobody can tell you. Unis will look at your circumstances. However, some expect that you do at least 3 A Levels in your A2 year, as part of the challenge of A Levels is having to juggle the demands of the 3 separate subjects. Therefore, although you'll have the required grades, you may not fulfil this requirement
