    I do Aeronautics, and my interviewer said he didn't care about GCSE's, as long as you have like a couple of A*'s. They are more impressed with brilliant A Levels and lots of work experience. My interview consisted of me talking about my work experience and my extended project on aircraft for about 20 mins!

    I'm currently in First Year. My offer was A*AA Maths, Further Maths, Physics (I did A Level Chemistry aswell). I was predicted A*A*A, Further Maths, Physics, Chemistry; I did standard Maths in the lower sixth and got an A* in it. GCSE's I got 9A*'s and 2A's, but as I said it's irrelevant as they prefer work experience. I worked at Dunlop Aircraft Tyres for two weeks and the BP in Sunbury for a week. I did an Extended Project over the summer on How Natural Phenomena Affect An Aircraft's Safety and Performance.

    If you got Bs in Maths and Science at GCSE, I am concerned you'll be struggling through A-level... I got full marks in GCSE Maths and pretty damn close in Core/Additional Science, but I only got A*AA Maths FMaths Physics at A-levels. They hard, man.

    Aeronautics is freeeaaakin' competitive. Work experience will help you a lot but unless you make the grades it just won't cut it. Your GCSE results are largely irrelevant for almost any university degree. They won't care as long as your AS results and A-level predicted results meet the mark. But I'm just concerned. :/

    Also read. Read everything. Starting from now. XD

    I honestly don't think it will make much of a difference. You'll be off not worrying about it and focusing on your A Levels.

    Woah, all A*'s, A's, and B's. Those are literally the worst GCSE's ever.

    At this point I would like to point out I'm being sarcastic, because you're a retard and I assume you can't distinguish between genuine comments and ridicule.
