Hello, my dream school for years was Cambridge and I've wanted to go there and study law for a while now. However, recently due to mental health issues and a recovering ED, my grades have dropped quite a bit.
I was a straight A/A* gcse student before but now, although I still have all A*'s in English lit and language and History which are the subjects I want to take for A levels, I'm currently getting low B's in Maths and Sciences (but I'm trying to push those to hopefully a low A) and I'm getting consistent C's in French and due to all the time off school I missed in recovery my Art grade will be a C at best. Also I'm an strong A student in business studies if that helps.
Anyways, I'm wondering if it's possible to get into Cambridge or any other top universities with these potential gcse grades or whether this is just a pipe dream? Thanks x

Yes it is possible, and not even extremely uncommon. Obviously a strong set of GCSE results would help, but it is only one factor in an application. You still have plenty of time to improve those grades too, so focus on that.
