    Hi everyone,

    Im just about to do my gcse's and was just wondering, If I were say to get the following gcse's:

    Eng lit A
    Eng lang A*
    Chem A
    Bio A
    PhysA*
    RS A*
    Geo B
    Hist B
    Fre B
    Maths A*

    What would my chances be of getting into top unis like Bristol, Durham, Leeds, York, Edinburgh, Oxbridge etc. Assuming I got 3A's at A level if not A*AA and looking to study economics?

    Thank you in advance

    You're fine. Those are a good set of GCSE's! And you have A's/A*'s in all the core subjects, which is mostly what unis want. The entry requirements usually say something like '5 A-C passes with at least a B in English and Maths' etc.

    My friend got all B's at GCSE is at York, so there you go

    A-levels are more important.

    Dunno about Oxbridge, but for Bristol, York, Leeds ect you will be fine. GCSE's are more important for the most competitive courses like medicine/vet med where they will use them to narrow things down when there are plenty of exceptional candidates
