    I achieved three A's at AS and am predicted three A*'s for a level. My personal statement is pretty good and my references will be amazing. However, I completed my EPQ last year and got a C in it! I couldn't believe it - my teachers had all led me to believe I would achieve an A minimum.
    I'm applying to Durham, LSE, UCL and Warwick as well, and am sitting the LNAT in two weeks exactly. So far I've been getting an average of 26 on my test papers, but am aiming for 30.
    Will my C in EPQ stop me from getting into Cambridge??? I know ideally the university takes candidates with score 90% or above in all formal exams they take and I only got 60%....

    Your EPQ is relatively unimportant.

    And no that's no true.
