My AS Level Results & My A Level Options

Hi - long time no see, A levels have taken over my life and after getting my AS results they need to take over my life even more!

So, i took 4 AS levels which were: English Language, Sociology, Business and Core Maths.

I enjoyed every subject however hated all at one point but stick with them they're not that bad.

I didnt work as hard as i could've for my AS's - I feel like part of the reason is because I didnt know what I wanted to do in Uni. I only found what I wanted to do around March time which is Business Management and the Uni I'd love to go to is Leeds however the grades for Leeds is AAB. So when I found this out i worked my butt off for those couple months before exams but I knew deep down all the time I wasted was what I needed for the grades.

On results day I had no idea what to expect, I literally had no idea. I was basically praying for D's because it meant I could carry on taking the subjects however deep down I was hoping for higher.

I came out of results day with:

Core Maths                    B
English Language         C
Business                        D
Sociology                      D

So thankfully I could carry on taking English Language, Business and Sociology for A level and Core Maths is only a year course so I had come out of that with a B. I had mixed emotions, I had really struggled with English all year round and I had only just got an E in the mock we did in December so I was over the moon with a C and I also found out that in paper 1 I got the highest in the class and I was so proud becuase i really had stuggled with it.

Now, business i was gutted with becuase I enjoy it the most and I want to do it at Uni so I need high grades. My low grade was due to the structure of my answers which is similar to my Sociology as well. I knew the knowledge but if you can't structure it properly it's hard to get high marks.

This year I'm so motivated, I'm aiming for AAB however due to my low AS levels I doubt I'll be predicted high enough to even be offered a place for Leeds but a girl can try and I have some back ups anyway although most Russel Group University Business Management Courses are AAB so the pressure is on.

Good Luck if you're doing your AS level results or A levels!

I'll hopefully post more frequently but need to concentrate on my A levels! Hope you understand!
