    Just to be sure I'll ask.

    I have 4A*s 4As 1B 1c and a Distinction (BTEC ICT).
    A*s in Maths, RE, Physics and Biology
    As in Chemistry, English Lit, English Lang and History
    B in Electronics
    C in German

    Is this likely to effect me negatively if I apply to Oxbridge (if I have competitive A-levels) I would either apply for engineering or computer science. I know that Electronics is low considering how relevant it is to what I want to do, but my teacher was crap and I basically got taught stuff that wasn't relevant to the exam :mad: Also I could have tried harder for my German, but at the end of the day I didn't.

    Also how competitive are Engineering and Computer Science.

    Last year, 100% of students got 5Cs so you would have been bottom of my school that year.
    Guess who won't be winning any prizes for sympathy. What a nasty thing to say.

    Sorry to invade your thread, guys (former year 13) but congratulations to everyone. What an amazing set of results! Keep it up and you should get some impressive A level results! Good luck and enjoy sixth form!

    You've probably misread something. The way it will always work for GCSEs is as follows:
    90% UMS - A*
    80% UMS - A
    70% UMS - B
    60% UMS - C
    and so on.
    Are you sure that it's out of 200 or that you got 172?
