    Hi everyone - any ideas what the Cambridge GCSE (requirements) are? I know there aren't SET requirements, just wondering what the average applicant has? Also, would it be realistic with 4 A*s and 5 As (GCSE alone)?

    Thanks.

    You've answered the question yourself

    There's no hidden requirements. And yes most successful applicants have that profile but you can be successful with fewer, and unsuccessful with more...

    Do well in your GCSEs then focus on your A-levels, they are more important for your application.

    Which course are you considering? And which A-levels?

    I agree with the comment above. Cambridge focus less on GCSEs than Oxford but it is mainly about your A-Levels and Interview.
    Good Luck!
