I received my GCSES results today and I'm slightly disappointed. I ideally wanted 8 A*s and 2 As but these are my results:
English Literature: A*
English Language: A*
Chemistry: B (1 mark off an A)
Religious Studies: A*
So I got 6A*s, 2As and 2Bs. I know these grades are fine but I'm still quite disappointed. All the subjects I'm doing for A Level I got high A*s in, which is positive for A Level but I still feel I could have done better.
I'm very academic and have aspirations of either Cambridge or going to a high tier American university. Firstly, would Cambridge even consider me with these grades, even if the spring I want to study is completely unrelated to those? I want to possibly take law but am wondering if I would get a chance?
And with universities abroad, does anyone know if top American, Canadian or Australian universities care too !much about GCSEs or are there other more important factors? Should I bother applying with these grades?
Cogratulations to everyone on their results today as well!
Can I still get into a top university with my GCSE results?
