I unfortunately did very bad in my GCSE's. I passed every subject and didn't fail anything, but I also didn't get a single grade 7 (equivalent to an A). My courses that I'm looking to do at uni don't really have much information on GCSE grades so I assumed they weren't significant, but others are saying that they look at your GCSE grades before anything else and make a judgement off that. I just want to know if anyone has any info on this, or if anyone is/was in the same boat as me.

I'd like to know too, since my friend wants to go to Oxford but didn't try for GCSEs

Hey, They do care but it is more about your college results so maybe try choose subjects you did the best at for college and work hard and you will be fine Unis also take into account you as a person and your work experience so remember this!
Let me know if you have any questions!
