    RE: B

    My GCSEs are really not a reflection of my ability. I had extenuating circumstances relating to family issues which my college knows about and they've said that they will include in my reference. I hate to use this as an exuse though and I did want to resit at least English and Math but I feel I shouldn't do it at the expense of my A Levels. I went to an underperforming high school too.

    I'm currently in my AS year and I'm hoping to get AAAA but realistically AAAB in Law, History, English Language and Psychology. Say I achieved those grades with an impressive personal statement, would my GCSEs be an issue?

    I was interested in universities like KCL, UCL, Manchester, LSE, QMUL.

    I got 4A,5B,2C and got an offer from queen Mary. So
