    I want to know if I have a chance of getting into Cambridge with the grades I got at GCSE. I wasn't in school for year 10 because of mental health issues so I only had year 11 to prepare for my exams.
    I got A* in maths
    A in biology, chemistry, physics, english lit and RE
    B in history and english language.

    I'm doing physics, maths and biology at A-Level and I'm predicted A*s all round. I'm also picking up further maths next year which I will fast track to get it all done in one year instead of two.

    If my personal statement is decent, would I have a fair enough chance of getting in?

    Yes, of course you have a chance.

    It is worth noting that you may be able to have your school submit an extenuating circumstances form for you to contextualise your performance.

    You can find some information here.
