    I'm not going to come in here and ***** and complain that my life has come to an end and whatnot.

    Just generally wondering if I'll be looked down on by employers/universities if I achieved grades say around A*A*A*A*AAXXX (with X representing anywhere from D-U). Now although I believe I'm able to achieve around six As/A*s, the other three GCSEs were just really awful choices. I have thought about my A level choices quite a lot and have now only chosen subjects that I enjoy (luckily three of them are respected).

    I have my biology paper in another 90 minutes and I have next to no knowledge of the syllabus so I'm expecting a horrific grade.

    If it comes down to a 50:50 sort of thing will universities then look at GCSEs to make a decision? Because quite frankly I haven't taken these exams seriously, I need AAAACC at GCSE level to do what I want in sixth form so I've pretty much disregarded the other three subjects because I just couldn't be bothered.

    Not exactly the best attitude to have but at least I'm not crying like the rest of the population of TSR.

    Nah, I'm not. I would be if I ****ed up the other six subjects, but I've done most of the exams for those already and I'm pretty confident. And realistically I could revise for two of those six subjects and boost one up to a B and the other up to a C, but I generally don't give a **** if I fail them right now.

    I just feel too relaxed to care about them.

    4A*'s and 2A's, don't see why you would be crying :L.

    That's good enough to get you into the likes of medicine, as long as your A-Levels follow the same trend.

    First of all, don't think many are going to appreciate the sheer attitude involved in the last sentence.

    Secondly, 4A*S and 2As is not worthy of a complaint like this. That is good.

    Thirdly, perhaps you should have got off TSR and revised for Biology if it was 90 minutes away. Just a thought.

    Fourthly, and to actually answer your question, those grades will barely affect you.
