Does it matter if I do badly at Art GCSE (I want to go to Cambridge)?

I'll probably get mostly A*, maybe less in Biology (A), and definitely less in French (B) and Art. I might fail Art with a E or a D... or I might get a C or a B. I don't know. Our teacher has been off for the last month and the workload is terrifying. Our final art exam is just a few days before my other GCSEs start and Jesus Christ, the only way I'm going to be prepared is if I sacrifice revising everything else. I can pass without revising out of school, because I'm smart and have a good memory, but I'll do better with revision. If I do fail Art, hoe much will it matter for a Cambridge application for Maths or Natural Science or something similar?

Meh, it's neglible. They care more about your PS, entrance exam score and AS UMS (if offered).

Dropping an A in GCSE Art shouldn't impact

I'm in pretty much the same situation, I'm quite academic but art will probably be my worst grade at GCSE, but I don't think it'll affect getting into cambridge! As long as you do well in your other subjects you'll be fine

Better to guarantee your half a dozen A's and a lower grade in Art than losing a few As just to get a B in art
