I just took my IGCSE's this year and my result is A*A*AAAB for the following subjects in order; chemistry, physics, maths, combined science, biology, english. Everyone is telling me that these grades aren't enough for trying for a uni scholarship and that i should take more subjects for more A's at GCSE. I'm currently taking Maths, Chemistry and Bio at A-level and Law and Computer science as AS-Levels. Should I take more GCSE's or are these enough.

Note: I moved from london to pakistan 2 years ago, i was born and resided in london for 14 years.

Scholarships all have their own different requirements and I've never seen one that specified GCSE grades! Normally they look at overall academic achievement and other factors like what course you study, where you are from, and your financial need. Most people do take more GCSEs than that but I can't imagine it would be held against you. Why don't you have a look at the university website to see if there are any that might apply to you and what their criteria are?

Thank you so much, I have looked on the website the only specified criteria to get a scholarship is having an A*AA for a-levels and all Gsce's at B or above. I just wanted to ask if I had a chance of even getting one with the grades I got. Thank you again x

Hey I'm in the same situation currently, so what happened with you? Did you find the scholarship? Do scholarships have a deadline and when is it? What websites did you look at?
