    Hello, I’m Natalie and I’m new to Student Room! Recently I’ve been stressing about my IB scores. My dream universities are Durham and UCL for Geography BA/ BSc, but I don’t know if a 38/45 can get me there. It’s a risky choice. I am doing UCAS for Sep 2018. Here are some information

    University Choices: UCL, St. Andrews, Durham, LSE, Manchester
    Predicted IB Score: 38/45 ( English LaL HL 6, Geography HL 7, Art HL 7, Maths SL 5, Chinese LaL SL 5, Design Technology SL 6)
    IGCSEs: 4A*s, 2A, 2B, 1C
    A LOT OF EXTRA CIRCULAR ACTIVITIES (Chairperson of school society, house captains, cheerleading leader, school masters of ceremony...)

    If not, any universities recommendations anyone can give? As a safer choice? 😭🙏🏻❤️

    You are going to have to check the entrance requirements for the unis you wish to apply to. Just google them. makes no sense for me to do it for you.

    38 is on par with A*AA (When I looked it up), so I would think thats good enough for any of them.

    Ok i looked it up for you and UCL is 36-38
    Durham is 37.

    That means you are at the top end and very well placed.
    You are fine for both.
