    I achieved 7A*'s, 1A, 1B and 2C's and I'm really worried they're not good enough for Cambridge. I've always wanted to go and I regret not trying throughout GCSE and only revising the night before the exams! I'm really really worried and would like to know if they're good enough. Thanks guys

    Those are amazing grades and yes those GCSE grades are good enough for Cambridge. You got 7A*! Now you have the chance to work even harder for A-levels. Those matter the most.

    no chance just give up


    The average amount of A*s for a successful Cambridge applicant is 7 I believe.
