Really confused about top schools Ivy! My GCEs are bugging me! In dire need of Watch

    • Thread Starter

    I was a really good student throughout my internals at school but i do not know how and why i seriously messed up my externals GCEs and ended up getting getting 3A*s 4As and 6Bs (It might be because during the exams i was under severe mental pressure du to family issues and fights at home) . But if talk besides my grades then i have founded 2 successful startups! 3rd one is under progress Its completely charity related . The first 2 were done individually but for the third one i travelled across country didi rigirous work to make a team. moreover, I have represented my school at every national science olympiad that has happened to date and have bagged awards also. I have held position in school council also. I am certified Intel Software developer a recruit at Facebook developer community a google news featured blogger and an AI researcher as well who code in python. Also served as the blackberry trusted contributor and develop games for android also! Have organized charity drives also. Only if my GCEs weren't bad i would not have not been suicidal at this point. After the result it feels like as if the things are falling a part.My long saw dream for ivy league or any top school feels shattered. But i haven't lost hope uptil now i am willing to give my 110% if it takes me to my dream and that is to get an acceptance letter from Cambridge and Harvard and all other Ivys. I just want to know "Do I till stand a chance to get into a top school?"
    I was never like this Please help! Can i still get into a top school? Currently i am in the first year of my A levels! I am willing to give my 120% now if it takes me closer to my dream! Just want to know can i still get in?
    Thanks A bunch!
