    Hi, I know this is a bit of a stab in the dark and I may be posting this in the wrong are (I've only just joined, sorry!) but I was wondering if someone could lend me some advice. I told myself for a good few years throughout secondary school that I was going to get an apprenticeship (accountancy) and had no interest in university but after a very unimpressive GCSE results day (didn't fail anything, but massively underperformed in comparison to what Ii probably would've been capable of had I have tried) however I am now sitting my A2 levels and have my heart set on a degree in Mathematics with Finance and hopefully a career in IB. I am very motivated to achieve this (it's not the money, it's the demanding nature of the job and how everyday is different plus a love for statistics) which has shown through how my predictions have changed from based off my GCSE grades. Basically, which would be the best (as, Oxbridge/LSE etc. are off the cards due to my GCSE results) university to strive for with *predicted* grades A* (Maths) and an A in both Statistics and Psychology with the end goal being a career in IB. Thank you in advance, Paul.

    TL;DR - wants to be an IB, bad GCSE grades, good A Level prospects, wants to know what uni would be best for IB
