    Hey guys,

    I’m currently in Y12 and for my GCSE’s I went to an inexperienced school and managed to get AAAAAAAA and I know those grades are OK but I want to know if I’ll stand a chance/get an interview if I apply to Cambridge/UCL etc for Law or History&Politics. I’m just worried others have much stronger GCSE’s than me. My A2 predicted grades are in line to be A*A*A with an A* in EPQ already achieved (hopefully). I’m not being arrogant, I just want to get a sense of where I’m at compared to others.

    Cambridge interview about 80% of applicants, ie everyone with a realistic chance if getting in. With those GCSEs and predictions of A*A*A you will certainly get an interview.
