    hey, just to say I hope everyone did well in their IGCSEs (and GCSEs, but you guys dont know yet!).

    I'm really pleased ! I was convinced I had failed everything! I didn't study AT ALL so my parents were even telling me it didnt matter what I got!

    french - A*
    spanish - A*
    geography - A
    english literature - A
    history - B
    biology - B
    english language - B

    Maths I did in november (c) but we wont mention that. And our Theatre grades come in two weeks.

    I just hope everybody is pleased with their results and did well. All the best to all of you and all the people waiting for their GCSE results.

    thanks. I was worried before because most people on this site have their predicted grades written below their messages and they are mostly A*s and As, so to have you guys think they are good results is really encouraging! Now I just have to decide what to do for A level based on these results (my theatre will probably be an A). I am maybe thinking of doing 4 A levels but is that a really crazy thing to do? Will I be swimming in work and completely stressed out? Any advice would be apreciated!

    sorry, another question! Are these results what universities look at? When do you apply for Uni and what do they look at?

    Depending on what universities you are looking at... some courses/uni (LSE Economics) reject people that havent got all A*/As at GCSE!!! and the minimum requirements for Oxford are 5As although Cambridge just requires everything at least grade C...
    look at me, got C in double Science and I have an offer from Imperial!!! (after 6 rejections for Economics I have to say )
    Your grade C in Maths my be a great disadvantage! Depending on what you want to study and where, you might need a B or an A!
    btw where are you from?
    I want to know my Business Alevel grade!!! (did it with CIE) but my school seems to be stupid or something!!! I just sent them an email (after calling them) If I get no reply I'm phoning again!

    I'm Scottish! (best country in the world) I live in Geneva at the moment but am leaving to go to boarding school (gordonstoun) in scotland. I hate maths and dont want to go into economics or any 'mathy' subjects. So if I got an A in theatre I could get into Oxford..wow!

    You have to remember though that most of us on here did the standard British GCSEs, so if the general consensus is that IGCSEs are harder, 2 A*s, 3 As (assuming you get one in theatre ), 3 Bs and a C are excellent results. As for A-levels, most people do 4 subjects in the first year (AS) and then drop down to 3 in the second year (A2), so take 4 subjects to start with and then decide at the end of the first year whether you want to drop one. Choose subjects you enjoy and are good at. If you have a particular degree in mind, find out if you need any specific A-levels. In answer to your other question, you apply to university at the start of your second year of A-levels, so the universities will look at your IGCSE grades, predicted A-level grades and AS grades if you've certified them.
