I'm in year 11 and I'm really keen to do English at a Russell Group uni (particularly Durham) but I don't think my GCSE grades are good enough?
English Literature - A*
English Language - A* (Already have A from November sitting)
Maths - A* (Already have A* from 2015 sitting)
Biology - A*
Chemistry - A*
Physics - A
French - A
RS - A*
History - A
Latin - A
Music - A
Total: 6A*s, 5As
These are my predicted grades based on mocks I did two weeks ago...
I'm planning on doing English Literature, RS, Latin and Chemistry next year.
Is this sufficient to get into Durham if my A level results match requirements or will my application be too weak to receive an offer due to my GCSEs?
Thank you in advance...
Please could someone help me? Watch

Of course they're good enough. Your a level results/predicted grades are more important, as is your reference/personal statement. You won't be guaranteed a place, but no one is at the top universities. Those GCSEs would not restrict you from applying to any university in this country for English; focus on getting your GCSEs for now, and then look towards uni when you get a better picture of your a level grades good luck!
