Universities won't really judge you on the subjects you took for GCSE to be honest.
Well what is done is done and nothing can be done now. So the best thing is just to do the best with what you have already got and universities should understand that some schools are relatively crap when compared to others.
what if i get like all of them as A*s and then they would not notice!!(cunning plan)
Excalibur...i am exactly like you..I go to a chav school!!!
Imagine what my Business studies class would be like....another reason as to why i detest the subject..
I don't know from somewhere you get this sense of determination in yourself to do well which comprehends what school you go or what people you work with..
The internet is primarily my only source of communicating with the Intelligentsia and therefore learning their ways!
Ok so in my results if i get 8A* and 6As.,without telling them in what subjects i got them in, would seem good ENOUGH??
Also i am the best in my school..does that put me in an advantage? (i got the year award last year)
Sorry if that sounds arrogant but i aint be bothered to go through the process of not coming out sounding it.
At GCSE the grades are pretty much all universities are interested in, not the subjects. In any case, taking a couple of non-traditional subjects most probably wouldn't affect your application. It's at A-level that subject choice matters.
CALM DOWN. come on, with me now: breath.
Universities will not really care what subjects you do at GCSE, what they (only slightly) care about is your actually grades. The only subject there interested in is Maths, which you have to pass.
Oh and you can't not tell them which subjects you took at gcse, you have to.
My school had a 30% pass rate, so being top of the year isnt going to be that impressive.
Sorry to burst your bubble but loads of students get 10 A*'s GCSE's and that still doesnt guarantee you a place any where. Similarly students with only a few A's at GCSE's had have gone to good universitys.
the_one is right - I think you need to calm down. Yes it would be good if you came out with 10 A* in very academic, traditional subjects. However, universities place far more value and interest on your A-levels. This is where the choice of subjects is important! So please stop worrying!!!
You are worring over nothing seriously.
Why do people get so stupid over gces?
