    Your problem is your GCSEs, obviously. What were results like in your school? I had below general Oxbridge level GCSEs but got an offer, partly I think because it was mentioned in my reference that my GCSE results were from a fairly lousy state school and didn't reflect my academic potential. In the end it's one of 5 places. It's probably worth it on the offchance!

    :p: Didn't you know, trolls have their own version of AS exams, in which they achieve can achieve A*s. If they can get 4A*s they get to sit under a bridge on the watch for billy goats gruff to cross. If they get less than 4 then they are doomed to forever live on TSR!

    Do it. If your a strong enough candidate they will probably over look your GCSE's.
