I got 2A*S 5as and 3bs in my GCSEs. I am currently in year 12 lower sixth and am taking history economics and maths. Do you think I'm in with the chance of doing accounting and finance here? I am currently bolstering up my personal statement by being Head of Law society, Head of Mooting society (law mock trials), Head of Drama society and Head of Financial Corporation society. Also I have done plenty of work experience at investment banks and am waiting to undertake a political internship in the summer. I'm just unsure if I'm in with a chance due to my poor grades.

Yeah your GCSE grades are good enough but it really depends on your AS and A levels. I'm doing accounting and finance in Durham this year and got in with ABB even though they originally wanted AAB. I didn't even do half the extra-curricular activities or work experience that you're doing either! Don't worry, you have a very good chance of getting in!
