    I got really bad grades in GCSE..I didn't really care tbh.. so long story short... that has all changed. I'm studying Music, Sociology and Psychology at the moment at AS level still... at the end of A2 im hoping to get AAB or ABB overall... My GCSE grades are BCCCCDEE... I got B in English language and C in maths... so ive passed maths and English but could i still get into one of the top 30 university's for music or psychology with my bad GCSEs and AAB or ABB in Alevels?

    Probably counts if you try to go to Oxbridge (or that calibre) since they are very picky. If you explain why you did badly in your personal statement and you do well in your A-Levels you could probably get in to a good Uni.

    More Oxford than Cambridge.
    But if you've got stellar AS grades then GCSEs aren't going to affect you too much.
    Most places don't really mind as long as you have good AS and decent predictions, you'll be fine
