Results day panic and university advice needed please... watch

    • Thread Starter

    Basically I am waiting for my AS results to arrive at the moment and am really anxious.
    I am currently sitting A levels in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and Chemistry. I have achieved 4 As in my january modules and my teachers said they will predict me A*AA in maths, further maths and physics.

    I am scared I won't achieve an A in chemistry at AS and then my teacher would predict me a B. Would I still have a decent chance of getting into oxford, imperial or ucl for a maths degree if my predictions are A*AAB?

    Yes. Because you can then resit the modules you want to in chemistry and get the A. So long as they know you are resitting it in january (put it on UCAS) you'll be fine. To be honest, if you were predicted that, even with the B you'd easily be considered for Oxford/Imperial/UCL. You generally only need 3 A-levels for entry. For maths, if you get A*AA with Maths, Further Maths, and Physics at AS, they are the ones you will really need for entry if you applied for a maths degree, so you have nothing to worry about. As long as you carry on the good work into your A2's that is :P

    ok, for a start you're best off waiting two weeks to find out your chemistry result before you worry :yes: cos it might not be necessary
    and then even if you don't get the A, as said above you can do resits and for even top unis this is unlikely to be a problem, with A*AAB even you'd still have a very good chance, so don't worry!

    For Oxford you might be better off taking up a STEP (which they encourage) and thinking about dropping chemistry. Imperial will demand that you get a A grade in every maths module, first time - no re-sits.
