    lets see IT nationals were in year 8... Year 9 was history and PE .. and year 10 was Maths English Spanish and human Health and Physiology

    shame as if I did History in year 10 I could have got an A* easy ( I was like 2/3 UMS of an A or something) and my Spanish was close to an A too

    not too sure I thought they just get lowered to one instead of counting as 2 ? but either way I won't apply somewhere GCSE heavy
    But 6a*'s is a great result! Along with work experience, etc...

    Someone on TSR emailed Birmingham, the university that is obsessed the most with GCSE A*s for Medicine,about OCR Nationals in ICT and they said that Distinctions were counted towards to the A* rate if they weren't in addition to GCSE ICT so BTECs are probably counted too.

    Anyone else really feeling the pressure of results? I honestly feel like I should've revised more and since I haven't revised like every hour of my life, I'm gonna fail

    so I'm guessing you're a wannabe medic eh? What universities are you thinking of applying to? I'm a wannabe medic too but I don't think I'm going to get in I took one look at the UKCAT and it reminded me of the 11+ , which was horrible! Also my GCSE grades are mediocre

    You'll just have to apply to your strengths and not pick somewhere GCSE heavy

    and in order Leeds, Sheffield, HullYork, Manchester

    there are a lot of books to help you with the UKCAT and stay positive
