    Your grades look great, as long as you're predicted three As for A2, I don't see why a university wouldn't accept it. I do wonder about your English, though, because, while a B isn't bad, some unis do require an A or A* for it at GCSE (Birmingham, Bristol, UEA, etc).

    Thanks for the reply! Are you sure I will be okay? I'm quite afraid, especially as a non-EU :/

    I sat my IELTS two weeks ago, I got a 7.5 overall. However, I got a disappointing 6.5 for my writing section. Whilst I shocked myself in the reading section with an 8.5 (bearing in mind the night before my exam I was only getting 32-34/40).

    I will sit my IELTS again next week, hoping to increase my writing scores.

    Yeah, I'm sure you'll be fine. There are always a set number of places for international students but, as long as you impress them, it'll be okay.

    Well done on the test! That's a great score.
