Hey I had my dt exam on Friday and I have a feeling I got a grade 3 or grade 4. I’m pretty sure my science grades and maths are going to be 8/9 and I am going to do Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Further Maths at A-Level because I want to become an engineer. Will Unis reject me when they look at my GCSEs and find out that I failed? (I wanna go to a Russell group Uni btw)

I think DT is core for engineering so hopefully you will get a better grade

did you do AQA? i have a feeling most of us failed so grade boundaries should hopefully be pretty low and you’ll do better than you think you’ve done

You could practice your maths and art a bit more.

For maths you could do Corbett maths, tes or watch YouTube. You could practice your art by drawing random things at home, a website that helps you draw is drawing 101 tutorials

Technically it shouldn't affect your ability to go to a good uni since your maths and physics grades will be much more important.

In most cases GCSEs are only skimmed over. One anomalous GCSE won't do anything at all.
