I need to ask, If i have messed up on my GCSEs, but at the same time got 5 as at AS and good predicted grades. Would I have a better chance to get into law at OXBRIDGE if i took a gap year and applied post exam grades, and what would be a worthwhile way to spend that year to improove my chances.
it depends i guess on how bad your gcse's were.
Apply whilst still at school... if you don't get in you can reapply, two bites of the cherry and all that
I completely messed up my gcses, and my school have said they think Id be a good post -A level applicant as thye can then see certain grades etc, and Ive grown pretty fond of the idea - there are hundreds of awesome things to do in your gap year, but I couldn't not apply this year so I am anyway, with absolutely no hope nor expectation, purely so i didn't miss the opportunity. You might as well!
