Do you think with my results I would be capable of applying to do either maths or opt

    • Thread Starter

    I'm really interested in maths problem solving, genetics, molecular biology and also the aspects of eye functions and how it works.
    My gcse result says are:
    Russian: A* ( my second language, Latvian is my first language)
    Maths:A(2 marks of an A*)
    Double science:AB( the highest result in the whole school)
    IT- distinction
    Art: C
    French- C
    Religious studies: C
    English literature: C
    History: D( 1 mark of a C)
    Music: D
    English: E( it's my 3/4 language)
    The current As's I'm studying: maths, further maths, biology and psychology
    The a level exam I'm doing without any lessons: Russian ( I taught myself all the grammar as we didn't learn it at school and I went to Latvian school before I moved to England )
    Thanks in advance for all the opinions
    The title is meant to say optometry not opt

    Well done on your results. It will be mainly your A level results that most unis consider. However quite a lot of courses require you to have at least a C grade in GCSE English or equivalent. I appreciate it is not your first or even second language but it is probably something you are going to need to improve your grade on so its not a barrier to you getting accepted on to courses. Try looking at unis you are interested in on the UCAS course finder, and check their specific entry requirements to find out if you are going to need English GCSE, or a different English qualification to show you have reached a certain level.
