I have had a medical condition which has hindered my academic performance. I got 3 A*s, 4 B's and 2 C's at GCSE (and then failed two subjects), but I lost the ability to walk in Year 7 and had lots of time off because of my disability which also incorporated chronic pain syndrome. It's incredibly rare and life-limiting. I was wondering, would I be able to apply to St Andrews, and be able to notify the university of issues that caused me to under perform at GCSE? They said they look at the whole application when considering applicants, so I was wondering if I would even stand a chance because of my lower GCSE grades, but high attainment elsewhere (including AS levels. I have been top of my class all year. I also have a huge passion for History).
I'm just a very concerned Year 12 over here, haha.
