I know a lot of ppl post stuff like this but i need advice.So when i was in secondary school i didn't concentrate as much as i should have. In my GCSE's i got ABBBBCCCC and a D*. I have now just started my a levels and i am studying economics, politics, maths and sociology. If i get amazing grades for a levels and do a bunch of extra curricular outside of school will they over look my GCSE's? btw i am think of studying economics at Cambridge, Warwick, UCL, durham or NYU.

For universities like Cambridge, Warwick etc which are really competitive , it is highly likely that they will look at your GCSEs grades especially if other applicants are predicted higher grades at a Levels or if they have better GCSE grades. They will look at your extra curricular activities as well, but your individual GCSEs grades would act as a sort of indicator to what you might be able to achieve. They would probably decide whether to give someone an offer, if they think you're going to be a high achiever.
