    So basically, I was a bit of an a** in secondary school, and didn't give a toss about my education, and then came out with the lovely gcses of AABBBBCC. In college, though, I really pulled it together, and I've now been predicted A*AA.I wanna apply to top unis, but I'm worried my gcses are going to hold me back.Does anyone have any ideas of decent universities I could apply to, assuming I do get A*AA?

    Get sight of a copy of this book it lists required grades for courses and unis.
    Careers, library or bookshop.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/HEAP-2018-U.../dp/1911067486

    Then do further research into each course and uni you are considering by visiting the website and checking entrance requirements in detail. the amount of GCSE they require differs. Things like medicine require a lot, unis like LSE and Oxford prefer a lot of A*, but other top unis do not. they all virtually require Maths an English.

    Thank you so much! That book looks ridiculously expensive, I'll have to stake out the college to see if its in there. :-)

    Why waste ur money on something like that when all the information is available for free online - firstly find a course and then research grade boundaries required at certain unis. Then continue with the research as suggested by @999tigger
