    I just sat my gcses this past summer and I got:
    Chemistry - A*
    Biology - A
    Physics - A
    Maths - 7 (A)
    Geography - A
    Religious studies - A
    English literature - 5 (C+)
    English language - 5 (C+)
    German - C

    I'm fine with those grades but ik I could've done much better and got atleast 4 A*s but i just didn't revise early enough to properly prep for my GCSEs. I'm currently doing Biology Chemistry and Maths at A-Level and I'm working a lot harder, I'm also trying to get as many enrichments on my profile as possible for my UCAS form next year. I'm hoping to apply to the university of Manchester or Liverpool to study chemical engineering on biochemistry (haven't decided). Is there any chance of me getting into a course like that with my gcses ? And is it worth me applying to maybe Oxbridge just to see how it goes?

    Yeah GCSEs really don't matter too much unless your applying for oxbridge/Cambridge or medicine, you've still really solid GCSEs so you'll be fine + the fact your taking three 'hard' sciences is much more valuable, I'd ask your head of year about oxbridge but 6 A's/ A* so it's within reach I reckon if paired with a good personal statement

    Your gcses would be fine for manchester and liverpool, there's no set minimum but cambridge says you should have 4/5 as/a*s which you do have so it's up to you if you want to try.
