    So at GCSE I got
    A*- Religious Studies
    A- History
    A- English Liturature
    A- English Language
    A- Business Studies
    B- Drama
    C- Core Science
    C- Additional Science
    C- Geography
    F- Maths (Because I have Dyscalculia)
    At AS I am predicted=

    A- Philosophy & Ethics
    A- English Literature
    A- History
    A- Politics

    Are my grades good enough to apply to Oxford/Cambridge/Edinburgh/Durham/Warwick? I want to study Philosophy at University by the way and then take a Masters in History. Also, I do a lot in school and am writing a novel.

    University level philosophy courses heavily feature logic which can be quite mathsy. I'm unfamiliar with dyscalculia but it's probably worth checking to see if you'd be ok with that sort of thing.

    Depending on contextual factors (how were your GCSEs relative to others at your school) I'd say it was worth applying - tbh of you meet the predicted A2 entry requirements it's almost always worth applying in my view. Prepare for disappointment though - but again, that applies to everyone.

    Best of luck.
