    So my friend and i have a question,
    it is likely for us to get A's for nine out of ten of our GCSE's however we already know that we will be failing music. Does this affect our chances at universities like LSE and Cambridge?

    please, it would helpful if you could answer in detail!

    Thanks

    How do you know you will be failing music?

    Surely you can try to do something about that? If you know you won't do well, you can try to improve, no? :fluffy:

    If you fail your coursework then its already decided that you've failed and if its a pass, its a low C

    I CANT improve something that i have NO SKILL in ?

    How much is the coursework worth in relation to the whole GCSE?
    What mark did you get?
    Which exam board?

    The coursework is 60%, I have a C/B and the examboard is EdExcel.
    Im just very confused right now. If i got B/A in Coursework and i scraped a C or less in the exam, overall would i pass? :/
