    Guys!

    I got 11.5 A*s and 1 C in IT! Eek! I was wondering...

    Will the C look bad on the A*s or is it just about the A*s?
    Does anyone know for sure?

    Thinking Oxbridge-wise....

    Thanks

    Congratulations on having fantastic results - I also like that you set your sights high!

    But please remember that A Levels are significantly more difficult than GCSE; if you work hard and succeed at A level then think about courses and THEN university.

    Sorry to put a downer on it but I know many people who stumbled blindly into A level and bit off more than they could chew.

    Erm... C in IT because I hated it and I never tried and I wanted it to be my weekly personal rebellion! :P

    It was GCSE AQA ICT 2011.... worst thing Ive ever studied in my life! Madness!

    Yes. Be prepared to be grilled about it and berated by the Oxford admissions tutors!

    Dude, the government are happy if you get 5cs . . . stuff like medicine at oxbridge ask for about 9A*s, 11 of them plus one C in a subject that not many unis care about at gcse won't do you any harm. . . you're fine. I got a C in ICT but I did do it in year 9, did you?

    Unlikely. Although, if you're at a job interview and say 'I have 11.5 A*s and a C' then you might get asked what the C was in. But once you tell them it was IT then they probably won't worry so much.

    Its completely obvious to the outside observer you weren't the one at fault and that the school cocked up or the board moderated the coursework down or something. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Short courses are complete crap and a waste of time. Any person who is mildly more intelligent than a retarded squirrel will know this.

    all those A*'s are now worthless. Your life is over and you might as well just kill yourself now.
