I've always wanted to go Durham.
I currently study AS level English Lit, Sociology and History.
I mucked up my GCSEs (due to school rep, teacher absence, and personal problems) with only an A* in English Lit and Lang and an A in history. My other subjects were B's and D for double science. If I get 3 A's at AS, with a perfect PS (wider reading, lectures, voluntary work, etc) do you reckon Durham would consider taking me for History and/or English?
I understand how much of a competitive course they both are - but this university is my dream. I've heard they are GCSE nazis and what not - but is it worth a shot? I just don't wanna apply knowing it'll be rejecting within a matter of time due to my poor GCSE grades.
Please give me advice. Many thanks.
