    I'm really worried because I only got 6 As and 6 B's at GCSE because I didn't really try. I want to go to a russel group university when I'm older but I'm worried they won't want me because of these grades as people have all As and A*s. Also, AS levels don't matter anymore so they can't even look at those, all they would be going off are my predicted A level grades and my personal statement. I'm really worried that I've really ruined things for myself :/ Also, I'm doing 3 A levels and no AS's

    Heya,

    Don't most Russel Group universities ask for 5 A*-C and a B minimum in Maths and English Language. You should be just fine.

    Maybe it will be useful if you could tell me what course you're looking to do and at which university, I'll be able to give you more exact information on the entry requirements.

    those are still exceptionally good GCSEs! just make sure that you work really hard at A level though, but, i am very sure that Russell groups will accept you with those GCSEs. however, i wouldn't recommend applying for medicine, as i know that they want A*'s.
