Can bad AS levels affect chances of offers?

I am applying for Computer Science courses with high Maths requirements such as Bath and Warwick. At AS I achieved As in Maths and Further Maths, however in both I got 2 very high As and a high C in the modules. I am worried that when I enter this into UCAS, because I will enter grades not UMS it will look as though I got a B overall or a low A. I am resitting my 2 Cs. Will universities know my overall grades? Will it affect my chances of getting an offer?

Hi Louis,

You should check with your school whether AS results are returned; sometimes they are not and the school's prediction about your A2s is all that goes on the UCAS form.

Good luck.
