I was wondering how much weight unis place on gcse grades in the subjects being taken at a-level.

Basically i recieved a 7 as my gcse result for history and want to take it for a level, in which i would expect to get an a/a*

However im concerned that in sixth form the teacher may undepredict me to the uni due to my gcse result
Or
The uni may get a good prediction but then realise i only got a 7 in gcse so would reject me as they wouldnt expect me to get a/a*

Is this possible?

Note: i wouldnt be taking history at degree-level

Sixth forms don't make UCAS predictions off of your gcses...

For the majority of cases, as long as you get their minimum requirements (for example, a pass in english and maths or whatever), unis couldn't care less about your gcses. But, even if they did, why would they look down on a 7? That is an A - a high grade. What do you mean 'only' a 7??
