9A* 1A and 1B at GCSE is this good enough?

    Some people would kill for a B! Be grateful! Universities are more bothered about A levels, just don't fall into the trap where you think you can wing those exams too because, I promise you sincerely, you will soon be in E/U territory if you don't put in twice as much work as GCSE.

    No, it's not good enough. Universities, are going to slap you once they see that B. I'd be scared if i were you mate.

    Even if the b is in a subject u want to take forward as long as ur sixth form lets u do it at a level and u work hard u have nothing to worry about. If it isn't then no one will ( unless it's maths or English) look at that ( and I don't in anyway mean a b is bad) b because the rest are amazing!

    ****ing shocking results. Might as well apply to your local pre-school now, cant see what other viable options you have.

    Lmaooooo I need your wisdom on this one Aristotle's' Disciple :rofl:
    tbh if he wants to do law or economics at Oxbridge the B in English Language is defo going to hinder him. How did you get a B in the most important subject?*Smh, you've dug your own grave with that one mate.
