Are these GCSE's good enough to get me into university?

    Hey everyone, so I opened my GCSE results and I think my grades are okay, but I'm a little disappointed as I wanted some A*s and more As and no C's. (Please don't call me ungrateful as everyone has personal goals) .

    I got 3As, 5Bs and 2C's.

    My parent were quite disappointed with my results and a lot of my classmates have gotten 14A*s etc and it has made me feel worse. Now I am scared I wont be able to do law at university. I really want to go to Liverpool University but I'm scared they wont accept me or give me an offer as my grades aren't as good Could I still be offered a place based on those GCSE results (obvs I understand that A-level results are important too)

    I got A's in all the subjects I'm taking next year which I'm happy about Thanks anyway

    Yes, you're perfectly fine. Universities only really look at if you got:
    5-8 A*-C which you have got and some universities have minimum requirements for English and Maths. Other than that, universities only really look at how you perform at A-Levels. Dw, you're fine
