    Hey,

    In my GCSEs I got 4A*s and 5As. Im currently studying Business & Economics, Maths, History, and Media at AS, I plan to drop Media and am currently attaining A,A,B,A in my subjects. My teachers predict that at A2 I could get A*,A,A.

    I really want to go to Durham Uni to study Business Economics, do I have a chance? I like the look of traditional unis like Royal Holloway. What are some respected unis I could get into?

    THANKYOU

    You have straight A*/As at GCSE and predicted A*AA at A2

    You probably exceed the criteria for Durham University.

    BUT

    Don't be fooled by tradition, or redbrick status. Pick a university and a course that is right for you. You won't do well on a course you don't like. Sure, it'd be fantastic to look at a place like Durham (beautiful place) or Royal Holloway everyday but there are plenty of excellent non-redbricks.
