    Hey everyone, so I opened my GCSE results and I think my grades are okay, but I'm a little disappointed as I wanted some A*s and more As and no C's. (Please don't call me ungrateful as everyone has personal goals) .

    I got 3As, 5Bs and 2C's.

    My parent were quite disappointed with my results and a lot of my classmates have gotten 14A*s etc and it has made me feel worse. Now I am scared I wont be able to do law at university. I really want to go to Liverpool University but I'm scared they wont accept me or give me an offer as my grades aren't as good Could I still be offered a place based on those GCSE results (obvs I understand that A-level results are important too)

    I got A's in all the subjects I'm taking next year which I'm happy about Thanks anyway

    Gcses dont mean that much as long as u dont mean oxbridge/medicine. Just ace ur a levels, you'll get into 90% of unis.

    GCSE's have very little meaning to most Universities. GCSE's are like stepping stones for getting you into college. It's the A levels which they're mainly focused on.

    Some unis specify grade B at GCSE for English and Maths, I'm not sure about Liverpool but their website should give you a good idea. Great results, though!

    Providing you meet the basic GCSE requirements (they'll state them on their website), and you have a good personal statement, there's definitely a chance of getting an offer. If you're doing AS levels, try to get the best grades you can in those as it could significantly help your application; if you're not, work hard on your personal statement and ensure that your predicted grades match the entry requirements.

    GCSE's are IRRELEVANT for university. Only Oxbridge puts weight on them.

    you're absolutely fine since I got 3A's, 7'Bs and a C in my GCSE's and got 3A's in my A-levels but managed to get in UCL this year so I'm sure you will be fine but some unis need a min of B in maths and english so check out their requirements but dont worry just concentrate on A levels

    Hi, today I received my GCSE results and I got 7A's 1B and 1D which allowed me to get into the sixth form of my choice.

    However I decided to research what A-level grades would I specifically need to take certain courses at University. Many of the courses required a GCSE grade in a modern foreign language of a grade C or above but I only got a D in German. what I was wondering about is how important is the modern foreign language when I do apply for a university and if I can get in with any other qualification to prove I can speak another language (for example a level 3 course which I can take over the summer holidays)?

    I also want to know if being bi-lingual helps the situation that I am in because I speak Albanian with my family at home?

    Thank you for reading my post and hopefully you can answer my questions

    Yes. GCSE results are near-irrelevant. Not once have I ever been asked to explain certain results when applying for jobs or education.
