    I got 2a*s, 7as, b, and c in my GCSE's. I am hoping to get A's in all of my AS grades. I really don't know if my GCSE grades are good enough!? Also, any A-level study tips would be appreciated!

    What Universities are you considering? Some place a greater emphasis on GCSEs than others.

    I'd suggest taking a look at our wiki here and then looking at the GCSE requirements of the schools that you have an eye on. You can always give them an email for reassurance but it will likely be your predictions and performance in the admissions test and interview that matters the most. GCSE grades are a method to trim the list and having 9A-A*s will have ticked the boxes of many.

    It depends what you got the C and B in. If they are Maths/English then you'll find it hard to get as most require A/B in those core subjects, also the sciences.

    If you got great predictions and a really high UKCAT/BMAT then you can apply to uni's which don't score your GCSE's at all and you'd likely get an interview, so GCSE's aren't the most important factor.
