    Hey guys!! So wondered if you could have a look at what I *think* I will get on my results day.. Then comment on whether Cambridge is still an option .. Obviously we don't know what a levels will be like but emphasis is on the look of my GCSEs -- Maths A*
    Religious studies A*
    History A
    English literature A
    Chemistry A
    Classics A (Perhaps A*)
    Drama, Spanish, eng Lang - B
    Biology (( 🖕🏻)) A/B

    If needed, want to study law as a degree

    I cant just simply make a judgement based on these grades because I don't know any contextual factors. Please bear in mind UMS from your AS results will be used much more heavily for Cambridge. Are these results good for your school? How did the rest of the pupils perform? If you get 5A* in a school where most people get 10A* you are less likely to get in than someone who got 5A* in a school where most people got 5Cs. If your school is severely under-performing you are likely to be flagged in the system and therefore more likely to receive an interview. From a objective perspective, they are very good results. Unfortunately, I can't make a judgement as to whether you stand a "good" chance based on the information you have given. At the end of the day, if you don't apply you won't get in, so worth a try if you want it. Good luck with your results!
