    It's easy to get a bit obsessed with GCSE grades but I don't think they matter very much. Your AS and A2 grades are much, much more important; focus on them and stop thinking about university until the summer. If you speak Arabic already then your Arabic A level probably won't be included in any offer they make you, so you need to make sure you get A*AA in your other subjects.
