    Hello,

    I'm kinda worried because I think my GCSE's are going to potentially stop me from going to a top 10 RG university. I didn't revise much for my GCSEs and I got 7A's 3B's and 2C's. I know I could have done better, some of those A's A*'s, B's A's etc. So I was just wondering, would they limit me? I really want to study Law at a top RG uni.
    Providing I did well in my A-levels (which is what I intend to do, hopefully!) A*AA-AAA (and an A or B in my fourth AS) would they stop me?
    Thanks in advance if you reply!

    It really depends on the GCSE's you have to whether they limit you or not, for example, a Health and Social Care BTEC won't help you do Law, etc..

    I didn't revise at all for my GCSEs and got 1A*, 1A, 7B's and 3C's. Will my grades limit me?
    I got the A* and A in the only two subjects I liked at GCSE, which were maths and physics. I'm now doing maths, further maths and physics at A level and I'm wondering if my GCSE grades will affect whether I get an offer to Cambridge or not.

    I'm predicted A*A*A for A2.

    Those grades will not limit you, they're not even that bad. Proving your competence with your A-Levels and extra-curricular activities is much more important when applying to university. Obviously GCSE's do count to an extent especially with top universities, but those grades are fine.
