    I'm hopefully going to get As and A*s in all my GCSEs except for art, which I'm aiming for a B in. Do you think this would affect my chances of getting into a high ranking or Russel Group university?

    i hope not bc im in the same position
    but tbh if you're getting As and A*s and you get 1B i don't think you'll be looked down upon bc you are still a consistently good student, especially if the subjects you want to go into, english, and maths are high grades

    I really doubt it, art isn't a core subject so it shouldn't matter too much
