I've always had aspirations of going to an Ivy League university from the UK but was slightly disappointed with my results, are they good enough?
English Language (IGCSE): A*
English Literature (IGCSE): A*
Maths (IGCSE): A
Physics (IGCSE): B
Chemistry (IGCSE): A
Spanish (IGCSE): A*
So overall I got 6A*s, 3As and a B, which was probably in the top 30% of my school, not too good as I go to a high performing independent school. Are these results good enough for Ivy League if I do very well at A Level and have good extra curriculars?
Honest answers please as don't want false hope

You did great, you’ll be well-suited with those grades.

Havard expects a range of As and A*s with one or two Bs so you should be fine.

Ivy league don't just look at grades, but they also look at extra-curricular activities. Try to volunteer in Oxfam, join the NCS challenge, do the Dfe and many other activities.
Bear in mind that a lot of people apply to Ivy league so with you. The chance of getting into these prestige places is about 10%.
Also try to get the best A-levels possible.
