    Hi everyone,

    This question has probably been asked numerous times, but what are the chances of me getting in to cambridge with average GCSE grades (6As & 3Bs)?
    My teacher told us today to not bother applying if we have less than 6A*s, i was wondering if thats true?

    P.S i have extenuating circumstances, if that helps in anyway.

    Not true, they look at all aspects of your application. Look up some of the Admissions Tutor threads on here.

    The typical applicant does have a number of A*s, but it is NOT a requirement.

    If you are on target to achieve the typical requirement for the course you are interested in then you should apply (next year... this year's deadline has passed )
