I recently got my AS results and am not sure whether they would be enough to apply to Cambridge. I want to study Modern Languages (Spanish, in particular) and got an A grade in Spanish, A in History (although, this was a mock as my History course is linear meaning I take all my exams at the end of Year 13), a B in Politics and a C in Maths (which I'm dropping for obvious reasons). I also got a D3 grade in a Cambridge Pre-U research project and am not sure whether it counts as a short course or a principal subject? Or whether it can be used as a substitute for an AS/A Level in applications? (I got 132.5 tariff points for it, if that helps as a reference). I also achieved 5A*'s, 3A's and 2B's at GCSE. So in conclusion, I have three questions:
1) Are my grades good enough for Cambridge?
2) How significant is my Pre-U grade and can it be used to my advantage in an application?
3) Will my Maths grade have a serious impact on my application even if I'm dropping it for Year 13?
*Extra info - My Maths grade was brought down by one of the 3 modules in which I got an E; I got an A and a high B in the other two modules.
Many thanks to any who can help!
