    Were someone that were applying to economics at Cambridge to have received As at AS in Politics, Economics, Maths (including 100 UMS in C1, C3, M1 and S1) Further Maths and Chemistry while receiving A* predictions for Math, Further Maths an Economics and an A in Chemistry but were to have performed relatively poorly in GCSEs (say 3A*s and an A) how far would that be penalised for said underwhelment in GCSES. Would said early failures leave a potentially disregarded application with little consideration
