    I'm in year 11 and I'm really keen to do English or Law 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...

    They're fine. Stop stressing and just do the best you can.

    As I said, they're fine. Most of the better Russell Group universities ask for A*AA at A level for Law (though they sometimes drop that a bit if they like the look of you). If you get that then you shouldn't have a problem.
