    I was a stupid, idiot at GCSE's and I never revised for anything and I really paid the price for it: 1A* 1A 6B's 2C's 1D. Now if I get 3A*s at A Level an A* in my EPQ and the DofE silver where do I stand?

    depends which subject but Cambridge is realistic given they focus more on A levels. Like a youtuber called Ibz Mo got into to HSPS (he transferred to PBS) with way worse GCSES than you. Which subject are you looking at and what are the A* in?? Also well done you slay

    You'll find that many universities don't really look at GCSEs all that much. If they do they usually ask for specific subjects at specific grades. The only courses/universities I know that care more about GCSEs are Oxbridge and Medicine courses. You should be fine!

    Oxford more so than Cambridge - But as said above, people have successfully gotten into Cambridge with worse GCSE's. ☺️

    Brilliant - Keep at it! Honestly, Cambridge isn't off the cards. You absolutely could get in with excellent A-Levels. Focus on that. x

    If you excel in A Level, you could get into pretty much any university since they're significantly more important than GCSEs.

    Predicted grades at this stage in year 12 mean nothing. You've hardly covered any significant content. It's the mocks in 7 months that determine predicted grades.
