    Congratulations on everyone recieving their results , i hope you all got what you wanted.

    I just wanted to know if these results would be good enough to get into competitive universities around the world.

    An honest and blunt opinion would be greatly appreciated.

    IGCSE Results ( All Edexcel)

    Biology -A*Business -A ( 2 marks off- sending for remark)
    ESL -A*History- A*Physics -A*Maths- BEnglish language -BEnglish Literature B - 1 mark off . Sending for remark
    Statistics B- 1 mark off

    So all in all. 5A*. 1A . 4B.'s .

    If i get the remark done and luck's on my side. 6A*. 1A. 3B's.

    I just want to know your thoughts and if i should be satisfied and if they are good enough to get into good universities .

    Thank you in advance 😇😇

    Most top Universities require Bs in English and Math, the only thing you should worry about is if your grades are good enough to get you into the subjects you want at IB/A levels. I personally know a guy who got into Cambridge with a D in english Language, just remember to manage your time in the 2 years to come and I recommend taking IB if it is an option for you

    Those are some very good grades so well done. I presume you also studied chemistry? While it will depend on the course(s) you apply to, you can definitely get into good universities with those grades, you just need to continue your success into the IB
