Hello.

Got 886666554 in GCSE.

On target to get AAA on my AS levels (our school still does them)

Assuming I also get AAA when I continue these subjects at A2, perhaps even A* AA, will my gcse grades hamper applications to unis such as york etc.

Planning to study History or Politics.

Thanks.

It depends because there’s some courses which they want a gcse grade in a subject relevant to it because they want to know if you have the foundation for it. However sometimes if you got high a level predictions, they won’t mind your grades.

Your grades look good so I don’t think so unless there’s a specific grade requirement.

even if u dont get the gcse requirement u could get a conditional offer which means u might have to retake a gcse.

Those grades are fine for nearly every university in the UK. The one issue with GCSES is that you might need set grades for English Language and or Maths
