GCSEs at UniversityWatch
This is assuming you got C or better in Maths, English Lang and Sciences. Which I am sure you did. I suppose GCSE could be important in a relevant subject but I 'm guessing now. Good luck with medicine Mr White
hence two friends both predicted 3 As, similar london uni law choices, both lovely charming girls same background etc, one had 11 A*s and got all her offers, the other one who got good but not great gcses - mixture of A*s, A's and B's - only got one offer.
they matter more than you would think.
however if your school/college doesnt certificate your AS's ie.you can resit them, then all the uni's have to go on is the usually dodgy predicted grades and your gcses.
Remember, you are meant to be learning. If your grades go up significantly between GCSE and A level, you are learning faster than the expected rate and you'll probably be seen as having good potential.
Good GCSEs get you an interview
Good A levels get you into the school,
and a Good personality will make you great at it when you get there...
