I'm seriously considering applying for HSPS at Cambridge, and I've dug around online for a bit and it seems I'm slightly under every single average or recommendation.
My GCSE grades are 5A*/5A/1B. I'm predicted AAAA at AS level, and my teachers feel it would not be out of reach for me to get a few A* at A2. But I am concerned my subject choices are too vague for Cambridge (English Literature, English Language, Religious Studies, Creative Writing)
I had planned to do English (shocking I know by those course choices!) but have since set my heart on Sociology/Social Anthropology. I attend a state grammar, I'm doing lots of extra reading and I've applied for Sutton/UNIQ. I'm trying every trick in the book but I'm still unsure if, even with the grades I'm expected, my GCSE's and A level choices will let me down?
Any advice/gut feelings about my chances?
What do you think?
