    'ppl' are wrong. You don't need any fixed number of A*s at GCSE although I'd avoid places like Birmingham, Cardiff, QUB and Oxford because they're iffy about number of A*s at GCSE (QUB will just give you a full academic score if you apply with achieved A Levels at grades AAAa though).

    There's more to getting in than just grades (especially GCSE grades).

    Your grades are fine - keep going!

    You're grades are great. And you should be able to get in.
    They don't just look at grades. They also look at other factors such as work experience, enthusiasm, understanding of the job, how well rounded you are, commitment etc
    Personally, I think it would be easier to achieve good grades if you did less a levels. 6 a levels seems too much to me...
