    GCSE - 1A*6A2B
    maths - A
    physics - A
    chemistry - A
    further maths - C ( a in fp1, a in s2, u in d1 which I'm going to retake)

    I want to do all 4 for my A2s. I know I could get an A* in maths physics and chemistry and an A in further maths with hard work and efficiency. will this C grade ruin my application to Cambridge. If so, I will just do 3 A2s and retake AS FM.

    Be brutally honest please, rather know now than apply and get heart broken
