Hi all,
I am a current Year 12 Student with the desire to study Archeology at Cambridge, however i feel that my GCSE results are not strong enough for an application.
I was just wondering if there was any way that i could boost my application to make up for 'lacklustre' GCSE's.
Are there any books/podcasts etc that i could use? Or is there little point in applying.
Thanks !

Poor GCSEs are never in themselves enough to scupper an application, so I wouldn't worry about that. There's a lot more that goes into whether or not an applicant is offered a place than just GCSE!

What are the results. I suspect that 'not strong enough' is a TSR version...
