    GCSEs won't matter a huge deal. If you get anything like those grades you'll be fine but will need to back it up at A-levels where it matters.

    Everyone knows you need at least 47 A*s to get an interview.

    They are fine.

    That should be alright. Just make sure you do your best, especially in maths, English and science!

    So youre predicting 9 A* and 2 A?

    The grades are fine and won't hold you back. However, your lack of understanding about what is and isn't acceptable to unis is going to hold you back far more.
