    hi, i'm in year 11 and i think i'm going to get pretty average GCSEs in a few months time - mostly 6 (B)

    is this really going to affect my future, i do want to be successful and do an economics degree at a good uni.

    If you know what unit want (particularly LSE, UCL, DURHAM, WARICK etc) please let me know about your experience with uni and GCSEs

    does UCAS consider GCSEs? do UCAS points matter or is it just your predicted a-levels and personal statement?

    Can I make up for alright GCSEs with better a-levels (like 3As maybe 2A and an A*)?

    sorry for so many questions haha thank you so much in advance

    Yes GCSEs matter more now, especially with the new GCSEs. Definitely try hard in your GCSEs otherwise you’ll regret! If you do well at gcse you’ll tend to do well at a level an vive versa...
