    Yes. Durham doesn't really care about your GCSE grades. What matters more is your AS/Predicted A level grades, and your personal statement.

    Please please please do not be put off because of your GCSE grades! You did really well!!

    I was thinking about doing geography at Durham, I like the course content and the collegiate aspect to it as well.For my GCSE, I achieved A*,A, 3 B's and 3 C's. I know there not the best and it worries me. For my AS level results (AAABC), I got A in Business Studies, A in Religious Studies, A in Geography, B in History and finally a C in General studies (not that anyone cares about that ). My predicted grades are A*AA

    Help me out I'd love to apply but I'm not there give to me :/

    I got an offer from Durham on thursday for Biosciences with 1 A*, 4 A's and 4 B's at GCSE, AAAB at AS, and A*A*A predictions. So I don't think they look at GCSE's much
