I know this question has been asked so many times on here but I would appreciate if people could give me their thoughts - be as brutal as you like!
So for GCSEs I got 9 A*s and 2 As.
I've just started Year 13 and at AS level I got an A in Biology, an A in English, a B in Art and an A in the full Maths A-Level (done a year early).
I've now dropped Biology and I'm carrying on English and Art and starting Further Maths. I know I need as many free hours as I can possibly get for the ridiculous amount of Art coursework and honestly I don't think I can cope with 6 maths modules so I opted to do Further Maths as an AS rather than the full A-Level so I only have to do 3 modules.
I haven't done an EPQ and don't have work experience of any kind. I'll be applying for English Literature at Cambridge.
My family are adamant that I should've done an EPQ and should do the full Further Maths A-Level, basically just EVERYTHING to benefit my application but I've made my decisions based on what I can personally handle/cope with even though they don't believe I'm trying my best (I am... trust me). I know there are so many better applicants than me, who've done more things and will have more qualifications. Do I still have a realistic chance or should I not get my hopes up?
What's my realistic chance of getting into Cambridge?
