    You think you will? You haven't taken A-levels so no-one will know. Not to put you down, but, you might not do as well at A-Level, see how you do first.

    Your GCSE results won't rule you out of a Russell Group uni, but your A-Level results will be much more important, so it depends whether you can maintain your grades through sixth form/college.

    All RG unis are 'good'. Not all 'good' unis are in the RG.

    So if you get the required A-levels you should get into a good uni. Your GCSEs would not prevent that unless you have weak Maths or English Language.

    Tbh, it's not common knowledge among the general public about which good unis aren't in the RG

    It's not about Russel Group's - it's more to do with the course and of course work experience. IMO the hype of the Russell Group status leads to more negatives than positives - uni's rely on their reputation moreso rather than actually improving where their weak on
