Yeah, don't worry at one measly c. No one really minds all too much about GCSEs, more emphasis is placed on your A levels. If it bothers you that much you have two options, 1) you could re take it or b) you could just not mention it.
The C won't matter in relation to the A*'s. But don't think that A-Levels are going to be just as easy, because they are not. You will have to work very hard to achieve all A*'s at A-Level, and would probably have to sacrifice a social life in order to do this. Not normal.

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.
oh yes because being unable to use a computer in a computer orientated society is fine
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?
hahaha, it makes no difference. IT probably isn't top of the list for subjects that oxbridge admissions tutors consider. Oxbridge-wise, grade requirements are to an extent determined by the course you apply for, but people with no or very few A*s at gcse get in. I got about 6 A*s at gcse and have offer from Oxford now, but some people I know who have 12A*s at gcse and straight 90% As at A-level got rejected. In short, your grades will not be a hindrance and there's more than grades involved in uni applications too.
Well done on the GCSE results, but don't underestimate the amount of work that will be required at A-level. For example, there was someone in my class who got about 98% in their maths GCSE, and in their unit 1 as results, they got a U in physics which was supposedly their best subject.
