    I am wondering if my projected grades are good enough to be a commercial pilot?

    They are:

    Maths: A* (Already Achieved)
    Physics: A
    Biology: A
    Chemistry: A
    English Language: A
    English Literature: A*
    Religious Studies: A*
    History: A
    French: A
    Drama: A

    I am wondering if these give me a good enough chance to get into places such as Oxford Aviation Academy? I am currently self-teaching myself A levels maths and will sit Core 1 & 2, and Mechanics 1 in June! Would my ability to learn a level maths impress colleges and aviation academys?

    It's odd how most people who ask this question on TSR should technically be smart enough to figure out the answer on their own. Since you so obviously can't, I'm going to say your chances are near 0.

    Okay, thanks!

    Well I am a fairly good speaker, but I am not really sure. We are not doing any work experience, so I don't know! On a scale of 1 to 10, with ten being outstanding, I would rate myself as 6.

    I have had over 2 hours in simulators though. Is that something worthy?

    I'm cross-posting this from another thread of remarkably similar content:

    Seriously. Your GCSEs do not matter in the slightest. They are just a stepping stone to get to A Levels, which in turn are a stepping stone to get to University.

    In the aviation world you don't really need any qualification above A Levels since the only requirements are an ATPL which anyone with GCSE level maths and enough money can achieve; however I would recommend doing a range of subjects at GCSE and subjects you enjoy at A Level and again at University.
