Entry requirements for an A level student

I have taken my AS level already, and my predicted grades are mostly Bs. But I realised I did very poorly during the test, so if for example I got all Bs on my A2 papers, will universities still not accept me as I did very poorly at AS level, or will they care about A2 level grades more? I am taking the Cambridge exam.

Hi Kevin,

The A2 result is the one that matters. Universities may not find out your AS results (ask your school/college). The school's prediction about your A2 grades is important and your AS performance will perhaps affect your predicted grades. Contact your school and consult with them.

Here is some helpful information on what to do come Results Day: www.thecompleteuniversityguide.co.uk/universities/.../

Hope this helps!
