    I'm sure you'll get it back, and at the end of the day you're obviously intelligent if your even considering applying to Cambridge :console:

    I'm in a lucky position, because two of my subjects are linear, so the A* boundary should be quite low next year. What subjects are you doing at A2 and have you had a look at the cambridge law admissions test yet?

    Wow, those subjects are so difficult , I'm doing business, economics and law. You've got like 6 weeks before the cambridge deadline, so you've got plenty of time to pick yourself up and I'm sure you'll be okay when you get back to college. :creep::yep:

    I took maths (OCR ) last year and got a C, i walked out all of the exams early because i didn't understand anything on the paper , and good luck with your Cambridge application, it looks like we'll be competing for that law place

    haha,yeh same with you tbh:') well due to the forum topic, it should be pretty easy to emigrate and I'm not actually too sure, they don't look for specific grades, obviously you have to have high grades, but they're more interested in you as a person which I quite like about it

    You're in a no-win situation. Just continue being yourself, they'll eventually have to get off their high horse.
