    Hey,

    I'm going to do GCSE in less than two years and I'm concerned about how many a's do I need for a certain degree to apply for IB/A Levels.One more thing, is it necessary to take IB or A levels?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    It depends on what you want to apply for, you need at least 5 gcse's at C for most places to do a level 3 course.

    Yeah, most colleges and uni's (since GCSE's are now taken into account when applying for uni since AS doesn't count any more) do have a baseline grade standard thing.

    Depending on what profession you want, there are certain GCSE's that you want to go for.

    For example: I want to do Medicine when I'm older, so I've taken:
    Triple Science (a must)
    Geography (decent choice)
    Computer Science (some Uni's find it okay)
    Music (I like Music, but it's irrelevant to Medicine).

    But yeah, you'll probably want to take your best/most enjoyed into A-level to make a career of.
    As for grades, it honestly depends on what you want to go for. Some people just say to aim as high as possible, but more demanding jobs (like Medicine ones) usually require A's or A*'s in specific subjects such as Triple Science.

    Yeah, this reply looks a bit of a mess, but I hope it helped.
