Hi,
So this question is for the people who got into Cambridge for Engineering, I would really like your help please
So I want to go to Cambridge but my GCSEs were pretty bad (8(english lang),7,7,7,6,6,6,5) and my Year 12 grades weren't great (A,B,B).
I have the whole summer to sort myself out and I might be able to get predicted A*, A, A MAX but I just don't know what do to!
What would be your advice for getting in, what should I do for my personal statement and what did you do, and what grades I would need, and how competitive is it? Im also taking physics, maths and business because my school wouldn't offer bio with that combo but do I HAVE to do further? Will it make a difference? And would I even stand a chance?!
Honestly this is my dream school and I want to get in so bad!

A typical offer is A*A*A and most successful applicants will have FM (+maths, phys and chem). You’d have to be able to get at least A*A*A especially as you’re only taking 3 subjects and you’d need to do well in the engaa. They aren’t that bothered by GCSEs as long as your a levels are amazing
