    Yes, I think they are strong results. Two possible suggestions / issues:

    1) Make sure that you submit an extenuating circumstances form so Cambridge are aware of your situation

    2) Your subject choice might be slightly limited, as 2/3 of your A-Levels are not in facilitating subjects. The impact this will have will depend on what course you want to apply for.
