    I want to study history, or something related to it, at university, preferably one of the Russell Group. However, I missed my History GCSE exam on Monday due to illness. They're giving me an average, but my second history exam is source based, so hard to prepare for, and I only found out yesterday what it was actually on. I'm worried that because of this, I won't get an A* in History, although I'm hoping for at least an A. How much would this affect my Uni applications, seeing as I was ill?

    Mate I know people who got C's in GCSE history and got A's in A level history. Likewise I've seen people got A's in GCSE history who've struggled to get C's at A level.

    Don't worry it's fine, it won't affect your university application if you smash the A level.

    I'm pretty sure on UCAS when you apply for uni, you can declare that circumstances like illness prevented you from taking the exam and getting the grade and they take that into account.
