    You should not have asked anyone on TSR, don't you know the average grade a TSR user has is 10A's at Alevel.
    But yes those are good grades
    A Level
    Pfft, no wonder you didn't make the average.

    I totally understand the OP situation, apart from the "A or nothing", man was that dumb. You know you could have got AAA, but you probably got ABB and you only need CCC.
    In the real world ABB is actually very good. It'll get you into some good universities, so don't beat yourself up. Silver lining is that atleast you're not worring about getting into your uni.

    This thread has no point. You've MORE than met your offer grades, no reason to worry, so you come onto a forum full of people who are waiting and worrying they havn't met the conditions of their course...nice move.

    Elitist attitudes are rife, perhaps at school, and definitely amongst some on TSR, where anything other than AAA is seen as a fail! But don't listen to anyone who tells you this! Thankfully the general theme of this thread echoes the truth, ABB is an excellent way to finish sixth form, and in a year's time you'll realise that A-levels are merely a key to let yourself into university. In terms of your career, your degree will be of more importance than your A-levels, and your experience will probably end up being more important than your degree. Good luck!

    Question is. Is ABB still good? I told everyone if its not an A its a fail (to keep me going) and now I might get 2 B's. I feel I've let myself down and I can't do anything. Just have to sit here and do nothing waiting for results!
    What course and university if your offer for?

    If you're predicted AAA but given CCC offer it shows that you're a good student and said university really wants you hence getting ABB would still be fine.

    I don't know why you're so unhappy.

    If it was CCC for a course like Medicine or a subject at Oxford or Cambridge (where they have been known to hand out lower offers to students they really want) then I'm sure most people would be over the money. Besides if you get a 1st or 2:1 in your degree then your A Levels wouldn't matter too much (well mayeb in the selection process of some Investment Banks but ABB still meets those requirements).

    You have nothing to worry about and you know.

    Just relax and enjoy the rest of your summer.

    Its for physics (WAFY) with a foundation year.
    no offense but if you are predicted AAA then why are you going to a uni that only wants CCC. It seems like your selling yourself short

    I was thinking exactly the same thing.

    You're worried about ABB not looking good in the eys of some yet you took up a place on a CCC course when you're predicted AAA?

    But then again it isn't always about the university you go to, you have to enjoy where you are and there really is no point in going a top uni for your subject if you're gonna hate every minute of your time there to the point it would drive you crazy.

    Wether it is good or not depends on you. If you gave it all and thats the best you could have done its good. If you are easily capable of AAA and get ABB then it isnt good. Simple as that.

    What are your A level subjects? Your predicted grades should be good enough to go directly into a physics course. Foundation science courses are generally for those with the wrong subjects. Like my daughter who has decided to be a marine biologist instead of taking creative writing.

    First of all you're abit silly to say that in the FIRST PLACE!
    But seriously come on, who wouldn't be happy with ABB when needed CCC! They are other people out there who don't know whether they'll get in their firm choices.:eek3:

    lol nah I'm definitely going to a solid redbrick. Its that I did not do maths/physics a-level so I have todo a foundation year. Thats why entry is low. Also low because no one wants to do physics these days. For example the computer science course even for the foundation year wanted BBB.

    Yeah I've got the wrong subjects. I've got Psychology ( a science for my university), Philosophy (accepted subject) and ICT (considered "soft" even though its soooo hard its the most failed subject). So I've got two solid subjects in the eyes of the university and one softish. But just in the wrong subjects. This is my fault, I got a C at GCSE in maths/physics so I could not do them at a-level. Then when I got to AS-Level I started regretting not following a science route. I really wanted to do physics.

    In these holidays someone on TSR kindly posted a booklet called "pure mathematics quick start" and I worked through it bringing myself right back up to scratch. I should in theory be able to pass the found year which will give me the math to do physics at undergrad level.

    I don't see why you are worrying your self over this. Your grades are fine (actually very good) because you will still be able to get in to the uni of your choice. You exceed their offer of CCC. Maybe you should do something else to take your mind off this and then you will come to realise that in time that there was no need for all this worry in the first place!

    Good luck with your year . I have just completed a science foundation year and will be going into Natural Sciences in September. The FY was enjoyable - except organic chemistry. Found that difficult, but passed ok.

    ABB is excellent. Some RG Unis wouldn't batter an eyelid if they saw that.

    Well done OP. Cheer up.

    Personally, I'd be quite pleased if I got ABB when I need CCC. Good luck for results day, you're clearly clever so you should be fine.

    depends what you feel, for me a 'b' may as well be replaced with 'FAILURE' on the results slip, if I get a single one I will be distrought and will take a gap year rather than apply in september
