    During my first year of A-levels I had problems at home, actually it was going on for a long time prior to my GCSE's, and it affected my grades. For GCSEs I could not revise properly and only got A's and B's which does not sound bad but I had the same problems for my A-levels and I got a BEEU.

    My ordeals have not been documented and I must redo year 12, that being said I pine to go to Cambridge so do I have any hope or should I give up?

    You should really tell your school. They'll be able to offer some kind of support and you might find your grades get better. I'm not sure about your chances for Cambridge, but it sounds like telling your school would be the best option

    I would say, having gone through similar things myself, it won't just be the extenuating side of it but they will get involved and try to fix it, which may or may not be in your best interests.

    Maybe it's possible to get to a top uni if you get great results this year irrespective of extenuating circumstances anyway.

    Utterly sympathise though, it ****s you up.
