    Hi, I'm applying to go to university next year to study psychology. But after reading a few posts on gcse results I've been a bit worried as I did really badly in my GCSE's. I'm hoping to apply to Sussex, Leicester, Southampton, Swansea and Reading. My GCSE results are:
    Maths-B
    English Language-C
    English Literature-D
    Core Science-B
    Additional Science-B
    Citizenship-B
    History-C
    French-D
    Business-D
    Drama-F

    I'm currently studying a diploma in health and social care and a subsidiary diploma in applied science and predicted DDD. I just wanted to know what the chances of receiving an offer would be.

    I'm doing A Levels so obviously I don't know much about diplomas, but I'd say from what I know/heard that unis will majority of the time focus on your predicted grades as opposed to your GCSEs. I didn't include my AS results in my UCAS application (I don't think I would've received any offers if I had) so my predicted and GCSEs were all that unis could see, although my GCSEs were slightly better than your's I still got offers from all 5 so I would say there's not much to worry about! Good luck for the future
