    At GCSE I got 5 A*s, 5 As and 2 Bs (A*s included history, Bs in biology and chemistry), and at A level I am taking Politics, History and Maths with the predicted grades A*AA. Entry requirements at Durham for history are A*AA, however my A* prediction is in politics - will this put me at a disadvantage among other applicants? Do I stand a chance at all? I know it's really competitive but I'd love to go there and would be willing to change courses to International Relations or something along those lines to get a place! Any replies would be appreciated.

    I already replied and told you if youve met the entry requirements them you'll get in. Unless on the uni website it states that ur A* will be in a specific subject then you wont be at any disadvantage. My cousin is currently at Durham university and actually missed her offer by one grade and still got accepted (although she was only one mark off)
