    Probably, I have a similar set of GCSEs but I also have other reasons. But it is worst giving them a call and explain your situation .

    I have a reason too. Well, I have two but I was told to put that on the SAQ?

    I have asked my referee to put the circumstances in my reference. Also, I have asked my head of sixth form to put my circumstances in their Extenuating Circumstances form as well. I think I will put that in my SAQ as well just to make sure!
    What course will you be applying to if you don't mind me asking?
    Honestly, you will be fine. I got the highest GCSEs result in my school and they still not good as your.
