Do I still have a chance of getting into Cambridge with my GCSEs? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I received my GCSE results yesterday and I am now worried that they won't allow me to get in to a top Russell Group. I got 4A*s in Spanish, Geography, Biology and Chemistry, 4As in History, Physics, English Language and Citizenship, and 3Bs in Maths, English lit and Drama. For A-Level I'm doing History, Geography and Spanish and the extended project qualification. I'm mostly disappointed with my English lit result as I was predicted an A* after my mocks, the exams didn't go particularly badly and I was only 3 marks of an A. I'm considering sending it for a re-mark but I know the rules have changed this year so I was wondering how likely it is that it will go up to an A? Also, more importantly, will I still have a chance of getting into Cambridge to do History with my underwhelming results? Thanks
