    I've always wanted to go to UCL and it wasn't til year 10 French when I realised that I wanted to study languages there. I started GCSEs in year 9 (so i studied gcses for 3 years), and I despised french. Actually I cant remember a lesson I didnt fall asleep in. Only lesson I remember being awake in was when we watched movies lol, besides the point, it it my favourite subject now. I went from an E to an A*

    But because of my really crap coursework in year 9, despite me getting A*s in my exams, it dragged it to an A overall, which isnt bad but personally I wanted an A*.

    For my a levels I picked French (duh), English literature (got an A in gcse), Religious Studies/philosophy (B) and sociology which I'm planning to drop. Are my subjects good enough for UCL languages? I know sociology is classed as soft which is why I'm dropping that faster than the speed of light

    my gcses weren't like, crazy amazing, but you be the judges. History A*, English Lit A, English Lang A, Art and Design A, French A, Core Science B, Add science B, RS B, Maths C.
    So yeah, should I stop dreaming big? Say by some miracle i get AAA, which is what i need for my course, do my average GCSE grades (in terms of UCL standards) drag me down? Thanks
