    everyone in my school that is applying for Physics has at least 2A*s and I have talked to others as well. usually people doing physics have extremely high grades. I have only 1 A* is there any point applying? well ive done it anyway and sent it. But do you think I'll be able to cope with the work?

    a 2.1 is great. do you mind if I ask where you went? and also do you know other people who did well too.

    I went to Exeter. Most people I know got 2.1's, it's a subject that requires a lot of work but as long as you put in the work, you'll do well.
