    Their prospectus says that you need
    As in Maths, Sciences and English Language.
    but they look at GCSEs a lot.
    So if you dont have good GCSEs they may not consider you

    i just got my gcse results and got the following:

    bio-a*
    chem-a*
    english lit- a
    eng lang- a
    french- a* (top 5 mark in the UK)
    german- a*
    geography- a*
    maths- a*
    physics- a*
    r.s.- a*
    ict- a*
    statistics- a*

    would this be good enough, in your opinions, to get into somewhere like birmingham in two years time, combined with 2 weeks in a dental practice and 6 months volunteering at a hospital?

    I hate people like you who know your results are good enough and are simply trying to get an ego boost.

    Yeah, I mean which university apart from Oxbridge isn't going to take someone with 10A*s. It is simple common sense and it is so obvious that this person is just trying to show off his grades and damage the confidence of others by making them think that their grades aren't good enough either.

    People who do the AQA board or CCEA get letters attached with their results if they came within the top five of that subject.
