    Hi there, I was just wondering if my gcses would hinder my chances of going to a good uni, not oxford or canbridge, but a top 20 would be nice.
    Gcse
    Engllish lit B
    English lan B
    Maths B
    Science core A
    Science additional A
    History B
    Business A
    French B
    R.E B
    Graphics B
    3A 6B
    Then my A levels were AAAA in Biology chemistry, Economics and polotics.
    Considering I have a good PS, and relavant work experiance, would my Gcses really affect my application.
    Also, I want to do either biomedical sciences or Business and management at uni. Oh and maybe polotics
    Thanks

    Not really.

    I mean, unless the course is EXTREMELY competitive, the last thing they do is look at your GCSEs given you done them 2 years ago (and thus have vastly matured since said time) - I think you should be fine so long as you don't apply to Oxbridge.

    Wow those are some amazing grades! I think as long as you have a grade C or above in English & Maths which you do you'll be fine, its more A levels they account for and they're awesome grades

    agreeing with Scienceisgood, it won't affect you and looking at your GCSE grade it's quite good you got 3A and 6b. I don't think you have anything to worry about

    You did well in your GCSEs. Those results are way above average and you've done great in your A-levels. You don't need to worry!

    Well, in his/her defence, they did also get a B in English lang and lit.
