I got extremely bad gcse's. However I am a canadian student and GCSE's would be the equivalent to grade ten. I didn't do well in mathematics and science. I got an A in english.

I want to study modern languages though. Spanish and Portuguese. I want to apply to UCL, KCL, Manchester and Leeds. I am a hardworking girl and I've been preidcted very good grades (my average should be at least an 86 or above, I don't know what that would equate to in the UK).

SO can my gcse's affect me?

Well, I hate to say this, but Universities do look at them.

My highly respected maths teacher said that's why he missed out on Cambridge, due to his, and I quote, "sorry set of GCSE results."

It will influence the decision, but if you're applying for a language degree, then who cares about maths? The A in English should prove that you have linguistic ability and talent!

Good luck!
Skips.
