    I just wanted everyone's honest opinion on whether I have a good chance of making a competitive application to Cambridge? (lack of A*)
    In GCSE I was in an inexperienced and underachieving school in which my grades were top 9%. I got;
    Maths A
    English Lit A
    English Lang A
    Double science AA
    Business A
    PE A
    History A
    In A2 I believe/highly confident I will be predicted A*A*A. Say I achieve that and my PS etc are all good, will I honestly stand a good chance of getting an offer from Cambridge to do law if everything else goes well?
    Thanks guys.

    Definitely apply. Cambridge don't place a large emphasis on GCSE's - and anyways, your grades are fine. I know someone that got in to Cambridge with 4A 2C 1D.

    Ibz Mo's story is great, but I can't stand the guy himself. Couldn't watch more than 30 seconds of his video - was dying of cringe.
