    I'm thinking of applying to durham but browsing through all of the am I good enough for durham posts has really discouraged me.

    GCSES:
    A - Maths
    A - Arabic
    Distinction - IT
    Merit - Media
    B - R.E.
    B - Additional science
    C - English lit and lang
    C - Core science
    C - Citizenship

    so AAABBBCCC

    I failed my first year of AS (B in film, C in arabic, D in in computing, U in maths) So i transferred to BTEC. I completed my first year and got D*D* (full grades). I decided to start doing some maths in the holidays and its and I'm working at a B/A grade at the past papers that I've finished so I decided to sign up for A level maths this year. I will be sitting 6 exams in june. Is it worth applying? Will I be dismissed based on my average(below average in comparison to studentroom people) GCSE grades and awful AS grades, or will they consider me?

    Your question is probably best directed to admissions here: [email protected].

    They do accept DDD+A at Maths though. They may suggest you take a foundation year.
