Where should I apply

    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys so looking for some last minute guidance. I have 5A's at AS, including Further Maths and am predicted A*A*A*A.

    Was confident in applying for places like LSE and UCL until I rememberd my GCSE's really weren't great and might impact my chances very significantly. Having only got 3A* and also got 2A's. The only inch of good news is I went to a **** school, and I know my GCSE's get adjusted just not sure by how much.

    I want to go into Finance so was planning to go to one of the top 5, just now worried my GCSE's will mean I should aim a lot lower.

    Would be extremely grateful for any advice.
