    Before I mention what I want to talk about, I just want to say that the grades I'm expecting to get are a lot better than most people (I think?), but I'm planning on going to university (perhaps not a British one) and comparing these grades to my friends, I'm being laughed at when I mention I'm expecting B's in certain subjects. So with all honesty, what do you think about these grades: For GCSE's: Theology - B/A, Russian - A/A*. For IGCSE's: Maths - A/A*, English - B/A, Spanish B, Art - B/C, Physics A, Geography (I was ill for the exam, although my predicted grade was an A [I got almost an A* in the mock exams]), Chemistry - B, Biology B/C.

    Well I'm really into business and management, and I'm just wondering if I can successfully get into high-end universities with these grades specifically for business studies. I know I'm not failing any exams, it's just that I'm worried that universities will be looking for people with all A's/A*'s, and that art (might be a C) especially is worrying me. I also missed out on my geography exam because I was ill, and I'm studying it next year too (at the same college). Am I going to be facing any problems?

    You might not be able to go somewhere like lse or oxbridge but otherwise apart from the universities who want a foreign language gcse, i recon you've nothing to worry about
