    Yeah for Cambridge, though you might have a little trouble with Oxford unfortunately
    How come? If it helps I also have 3 more GCSES in, Core science: A*, Statistics: A, ICT: A.

    Yeah haha I was lucky enough to scrape through!

    It was compulsory for us to take English language, foundation maths, and media studies in year 10 so worked quite well! Already guaranteed a place at my sixth form as I now have 5 A*-C grades!

    That is only for Medicine, I think. The other courses they barely care about GCSES- well atleast Cambridge from what I know.

    LOOL true true, but like apparently this exam was slightly harder so just hoping the boundaries decrease a bit ygm ? I mean it is a soft GCSE so an A* would look nice in it. If I get it then i will have 10 A*s hopefully thats enough for Cambridge.
