    I did 13 GCSE's this year (12 GCSE's, 1 IGCSE). 23 exams in total. If I had a choice I would have done 10 (our school made us do the IGCSE and 2 other subjects) so I would have had 17 exams instead.

    We don't do AS levels at my school anymore so it is straight to A2 even though I'm Year 12.

    First time but I'm a mature student and did other qualifications in my country. Got the equivalent of As at A level but a few years back

    The unis I want to apply to are fussy about GCSEs tho.
