    Hello, are 6A* 3A 1B good enough grades to study medicine at a decent uni - I'm assuming Oxbridge's out of the question, so Imperial, perhaps? Thanks
    If you get AAAB or AAAA at AS I don't see why most unis wouldn't accept you based on grades, obviously you'll also need a convincing personal statement, reference and interview (if relevant). Medicine's so competitive though so best of luck!

    I hope to take further maths, maths, economics and classics
    You've gone with your strengths, which is always the best thing to do (after what you enjoy, of course). Taking a B in GCSE to A-level is difficult though (Took a B in Physics at GCSE up to a D in AS after lots of work), so make sure you keep on top of any issues you may come across within the course and don't be afraid to ask for help. Other than that, the best of luck in your AS year!

    Hi, well I got my gcse results yesterday and I'm really disappointed and I was wondering if there would still be a chance for me to be come a graphic interior designer.
    Art - B
    Science Core - C
    Science Additional - C
    Religious Education - A
    English Literature - B
    Mathematics - C
    English Language - D
    Geography - D
    French - D

    I'm going to retake English but I wanted to know would I still be able to go university with grades like this or would I be able to become a graphic interior designer.
    I just needed 8 to be able to the courses I wanted now it's probably impossible.😩

    A* English lit
    A English lang (could go up to A*)
    A* Maths
    A* Latin
    A* Ancient Greek
    A Additional Maths (A is max)
    A Physics
    A Chemistry
    A History

    Thanks for any advice

    I got 7 As and 5 Bs and I really want to study Law at Oxford but I don't know if it's good enough? I'm taking Psychology, RS, History and French at A Level. I wanted to do English but they said no because I got a B :/.
    Anyway, is it ok for Oxford? Please help!

    It depends on what universities you're after. There are plenty of people who got into amazing universities without the typical golden number of A*s! You could try calling up the universities you're after and ask them directly!

    Those are more than enough to those A level choices, depends upon your sixth form though. But those are usually enough. I achieved A in maths, B in economics(I'm usually an A* in both maths and economics) A in lang and an A in lit and I have been accepted. So good luck

    Yeah my sixth form accepts grades form A*-C, but ive heard that people who got an A at maths Gcse are most likely to get C's D's and E's at maths alevel. It kind of scares me :eek:

    Also did you do maths and economics alevel? if you did does maths become really hard when you come to the C3 and C4 modules? Should i drop it after AS? I dunno :confused:

    I wouldn't listen to people saying if you gen an A you will get an E-what a load of ****. lol
    However I could see that they're indicating that you didn't get an A* and thus not capable of good A levels, but that's just because it can potentially indicate you didn't work that hard. Which is rubbish, because I personally was getting A*'s and working hard as ****, yet exam pressure got to me and I got easy questions wrong: Point being they're valid reasons as to why it doesn't indicate Cd at a level.
    it's entirely depends upon how hard you work and most importantly not to fall behind, other than exam pressure. You will be fine, don't let people deter you. I was a D in additional science last year, and my predicted grade was D, but I got a B. So don't listen to predictions as it's dependent upon the individual in my opinion.

    Sorry for illiteracy btw, bit stressed at the moment.

    Well I'm doing A level Maths, further maths, economics, and classics.
    Might drop classics at A level after As as I don't like essay writing, but it depends if i need it for lse.

    Wow those are really good subjects and also challenging. You must be really smart Sorry for so many questions, but what are you planning to study at Uni and are you currently in Year 12? And is economics challenging at Alevel too?
