    At GCSE I achieved A*A*A*A*A*AAAAB, with my B being in Art. I only achieved an A in History, as I was sick so missed the main exam. I'm thinking of applying to do Ancient History at university, and so far am looking at University College London, King's College London, the University of Birmingham and the University of Manchester. As long as I had the right A Level predictions and a good personal statement, would I have at least a small chance of getting into these universities? I don't want to waste all my applications if I don't have a chance. I'm particularly concerned about UCL, as it has higher grade requirements so may want applicants with higher GCSEs. Thanks so much for any help you can offer

    You would have a very good chance with those grades.
