    Ah! What happened? I haven't been on here for a long time but I remember them going on and on and on about grades.*
    Didn't get an offer from Cambridge, is at Durham.

    All that **** about Oxbridge and then... nothing.

    I was quite the opposite tbh. I really slacked at school and placed more of an emphasis on mucking about with my mates and my GCSEs weren't brilliant despite me being predicted really good grades up until my last year. Once I got to college though I worked my arse off and got some A Levels under my belt.

    GCSEs are only mega important when you're trying to get to college or the next step of your education (or if you're going straight into employment), if you do pretty badly then you might have to start on one of the lower level course but once you've got higher level qualifications then the GCSEs pretty much become irrelevant.

    I know someone who got 6A*s and 5As at GCSE and something like CDE at AS (can't remember exactly, wasn't good anyway..)

    Won't ruin it by saying their final A level grades..

    You can feel better at my misfortune if you'd like. 5A* 7As at GCSE to CDD at AS to BCC at A2.

    I also had hopes to study medicine at UCL or Imperial, once upon a time.
