    well it depends what all the GCSEs are doesn't it.

    and the total number of GCSEs doesn't matter much, i had 13, other people had 8, it just depends on the school you went to.

    and for impressiveness get A*s in the subjects you want to study at A'level, then aim for A's in the rest. the odd B or C in there isn't much of an issue

    4 A*s & 5 As is better in my opinion. As long as you have 8 GCSEs (7 at the very least) then you're fine. After all, if you ace those GCSEs and your A-levels then it wouldn't really matter if you didn't do 14, 15 or 16 would it?
