    I have just sent of my ucas but am awful at waiting. I have acknowledgment from all of my choices and an offer from Bristol. I've been at pathways to law at Bristol and received an AAB offer for completing it. Bristol is amazing and the law course and school is very prestigious, however, I don't want to get 4 rejections and be forced to go there without any choice. I've applied to KCL, LSE, UCL , and Durham. However, I didn't get very strong GCSEs regarding what these schools usually expect, 1A* 5As 2Bs 2Cs. I was disappointed. Nonethless, I've worked very hard over the first year of sixth form and been predicted 3 A*s at A2, having achieved AAAB at As. All of the A grades were over 90% also. Yet, are the schools I'm applying to going to look at my gcses a lot to assess me? And will they hold me back despite being predicted top grades?

    You will be fine. Worry dont worry (you probably will) that is your choice.
