    at worst I'm gonna get A*A*AAAAABBB

    Theoretically Icould get if my hard work pays off: A*A*A*A*A*A*ABBB

    Are these good GCSE grades? How much do GCSEs actually matter? I've already been given a place at a really good sixth form so I'm hoping i'll do well in my A levels. Also how much do universities look at GCSEs? The A*s will be in French and spanish and hopefully History, R.E and English so I'm very humanities orientated and really bad at maths and science hence the Bs... Would the Bs matter that much because I am most likely gonna do a languages degree would the Bs matter because they are in completely unrelated subjects?

    Those are excellent grades, as long as you have your english and maths and good grades in the subjects you wish to do at a level then the B's shouldnt matter for most universities.
