Hi!
I sat my exams last year and am currently at sixth form studying Psychology, Geography and French - and, I also go to an exceptionally high achieving secondary school.
Are my GCSE results good? Like, for me to go to uni, become successful within an industry etc?
Obviously, I know how important other things are, such as personality, desire, motivation and drive, but I'm only wondering because knowing whether you're 'intelligent' or 'good enough' at something becomes ridiculous once you enter the four walls of my school.
I was predicted 9Cs and a B (in RE) so know that I have done much better than initially thought, but I'm so confused now...I don't know whether I should be happy or sad or surprised, you know?
Being insecure is one thing, but then going to a fab school and only coming out with the below is another.

What do you think?

Thanks

Your GCSE grades are good for most unis. However, the lack of A/A• would only affect you in two/three circumstances.
- You're applying for Medicine.
- You're applying for Oxbridge. - but you do have four A/A* which might be enough for some courses.
- You're applying for /really/ competitive graduate schemes and law contracts. - but again get good A Levels and these will most likely not hurt your application that much.

For most other universities these grades are perfectly fine. A Levels matter more to universities. Get BBC at A Level, your GCSE grades will not matter. Get A*A*A*/A*A*A/A*AA/AAA/AAB/ABB - you can get into most top universities. UCL have a couple of courses with ABB requirements, as do a lot of universities in the top 20, 30 and 40.

You have absolutely nothing to worry about! I left school with 1 gcse in English as I didn't know the consiqunces of failing. However I retook one year and passed my gcse maths.

When i got to a levels, I didn't want to fail again and therefore it motivated me to always try hard. I'm currently predicted A* A* A* and I have just received an offer from the University of Birmingham to study Mechanical Engineering.

So as a person with only 2 GCSEs, I can strongly say that you have nothing to worry about. As long as you have your English and maths any university will still consider you as a strong candidate however your a levels are on point and meet/exceed their entry requirements.

Good luck

You will also need a strong personal statement to show your enthusiasm for the subjects, this can be shown by extra curricular activities such as an related EPQ to your subject



Good luck

Okay, so you're upset that I'm supposedly boasting (suggesting that you think they're good), but then saying that they're not good enough!?
Make up your mind lmao...and work on the grammar - sounds a little hypocritical since you can't spell

But thanks for your opinion

Great but you need higher grade A* to qualify for better Profession. Try Maven Writers they Helped a lot.
I hope that "Maven Writers" write better English than you!
