    I wish to pursue a career in Economics/Finance at a Russel Group University.
    I have just finished my GCSE's and received my grades. I know it's mostly on your A-Level results these days, but I am worried that my grades may be a hindrance on my application.

    I achieved:
    A* - Maths
    A* - History
    A - English Langauge
    A - English Literature
    B - Chemistry
    B - Biology
    B - Physics
    C - French
    C - Computing (However this might go up to a B as there was a problem with the marking on one of the coursework)

    I'm no expert but I'm pretty sure those grades won't hinder you especially because of your mathematics and history grade since econ is a mix of essay writing and applied maths
