    I just got my IGCSE (CIE) results this week. And I got the following:

    Business A*
    History A*
    Geography A*
    Music A
    Mathematics A*
    Additional Mathematics A*
    Coordinated Science (Double Award) A*A*
    Chinese (First Language) A
    English (First Language) B

    SO that is 7A*s, 2As, and 1 bloody B

    I am taking IB next year with the following subjects:
    HL English, History, Maths
    SL Chemistry, Chinese, Economics

    I am enthusiastic about the PPE course. But I wonder, are these IGCSE results good enough for applying universities such as Oxford, LSE, Warwick?

    Any response is greatly appreciated!

    Those results are fantastic! You've got very traditional, high end academic subjects, as well as doing a variety of subjects (12!) which shows that you are very well-balanced and equipped with a breadth of knowledge. That A* in Additional Maths is to die for XD. I did it too and I could only get an A.

    All you need to do now is to maintain the same level of achievement in your IB/A Levels subjects. Good luck!

    Thank you very much! I want to ask, would that B for English (First Language) discourage Universities from choosing me when they see it???

    Those are great results ! Having done the CIE english paper I think it was one of the hardest exams ( I scraped an A). TO be honest the Universities mainly look at A levels so if you get an A or A* in english A level I can't see them caring that much about a B at IGCSE level.

    Having 1 B won't hinder you. No university expects all A* at GCSE. Universities usually have specific requirements for GCSEs in maths and english, but these are normally B or C. Sometimes they will also have a requirement for a B or C in science and/or a MFL. However you meet and exceed all of these, so don't worry.
