    This may seem petty but its really worrying me , my whole secondary life it's been drilled into me that I will get quite a few a*'s , I've just finished my gcse's and to be honest I don't feel like I will get any .

    I have some natural ability so I predict I will get a/b grades , and I know it matters but does it REALLY matter if there's a star infront of the a in later life , I don't want to go into medicine , but I'm looking into business law and economics .

    I wouldn't worry a huge amount, you might have done better than you thought you did, and even if you didn't there isn't a huge difference between an A and an A* - unis are more worried about your A Levels than GCSEs to be honest!

    Good luck with results

    It depends on what uni your trying to get into and what course but with law and economics its competitive

    I would advise you to look at what the unis your going to apply for want.
