I'm currently in year 11 and doing my last year of GCSEs. Last year I went on a trip with my school g&t group (there was about ten of us) to Cambridge university and I just fell in love! The feel was amazing and everyone seemed so motivated and like-minded, not to mention how beautiful the city and the university was. The only college I saw was Pembroke, but since then I've looked at all the colleges and the course I want to do in detail, and can't imagine studying anywhere else!
I want to do an economics undergrad degree and then take an mba, preferably both at Cambridge. I know there's probably hundreds of threads just like this but I genuinely am confused about whether or not there's a chance I could get in? I know I haven't taken my GCSEs yet, but my mock grades both this year and last year were good and I'm feeling positive for my GCSEs.
My predicted/target grades are:
English lit- A*
English language- A*
Core science- A (this is the one I took last year so this is my confirmed grade)
Further maths- A/A* (we haven't done a proper mock on this so I am unsure which grade I would achieve but I've been getting both in homework and class work)
French- A/B (this is the only subject I'm worried about as I'm unsure as to whether I can achieve the A. My teacher says I am on track for either and A or a high B, depending on how I do in my exam at the end of the year, as in my controlled assessments I am averaging an A)
For my AS levels I have chosen to do maths, further maths, economics and drama and would be taking them all on into A levels. I'm not sure how I will do in these subjects but I've spoken to my teachers and they seem to think I can get top grades in them(I'm aiming for As in further maths and drama, and A*s in maths and economics).
So do you think I'd be a strong candidate for Cambridge based on my grades and A level subjects?(I know drama is probably not the best option to take and I know that they will most likely not consider the grade I get in it but I figured that by taking my other three into A level then it wouldn't matter, and I just love the subject so much, but would consider dropping it if you think my application would be stronger without it, and take another subject instead)
And actually passed?
