Hi, sorry in advance for the long post.
So basically I'm applying to Cambridge for 2017 entry. I got 4 A*, 5 A and 2 B at GCSE, predicted AAAB at AS (however the B was because I started the course half a term late, it's actually one of my strongest subjects so I'm likely to do better). However, I'm worried about what I'm actually going to get on results day. Firstly I've had depression since year 10, and OCD giving me anxiety and panic attacks since I was about 8/9. I had counselling in year 10 and doctors notes to back it up, as well as CBT (ongoing) in year 12 (during exams). So that affected my work. Also my home life isn't ideal. It's weird but basically my parents have been separating for about 5 years but it's not easy, and I have stayed at extended family's houses on and off to get away from a toxic home situation which has caused immense stress (hence the depression). Additionally, neither of my parents went to uni but I go to private school on a bursary. I've done loads of extra curricular things to show I'm dedicated to my subject, and I know my teachers will write me a good reference. Basically my question is, is it likely my extenuating circumstances will mitigate less than perfect results, when my teachers have predicted me Cambridge-worthy marks?
...with these A Level results?
