    Hi, I thought it would be interesting to chat about our Cambridge aspirations!
    I’ll start by saying a bit about myself.

    GCSEs:
    Science, maths, English language and literature, history, French, art and German
    Possible a levels:
    History, French, English language, English literature
    Other possible universities:
    Durham, UCL, Edinburgh, LSE (not sure)
    To study:
    History and French, HSPS or International relations, veering more towards history and French at the moment

    So that’s me, what about you?

    (If this thread already exists oops and I might have put it in the wrong forum!)

    Most Cambridge applicants don't start thinking about applying until after their GCSE results. Besides, GCSE results aren't awfully important for Cambridge. But I guess there's no harm in being enthusiastic.

    It’s only two years. I like to be prepared.

    Oh please... I never said they were *that* important, I said you will be better off if you have strong GCSEs for medicine rather than 0 A*s...
