    I want to do ancient history and classical archaeology at university (or something along those lines- a lot of courses have different names) and was wondering if any universities would be ruled out by my GCSE grades. I got one B (in art), four As and five A*s, but I only achieved an A in History (I wasn't able to do the exam as I was ill). I know that some universities prefer candidates with all As and A*s, and I don't want to waste an application if I wont get in. Any suggestions?

    No university in the country expects applicants to achieve all A's and A*'s.
