I’m completing my UCAS application and after being rejected from my first uni, I have four left. I’m choosing from Exeter(AAA), Bristol (AAA), Kings (AAA) UCL (AAA) Durham (A*AA) St. andrews (AAA) Royal Holloway (AAB-ABB). I have predictions of AAAB and a B in EPQ with GCSEs of 9877766554
Is it worth applying to St Andrews or Durham or am i most likely to be rejected? I want to study English and I know it’s very competitive!
I think Royal Holloway would be a good safe option (but i’m not too enthusiastic about it)
Not too interested in Manchester, Liverpool or Leeds as they’re too close to me and i want to move away.
Any advice?

Hi fellow Abi! You are absolutely fine for all of those Uni's, just check UCL because in the small print they want a gcse requirement for a foreign language. But as far as your GCSE grades, don't worry, if they show strength in the area u want to study that's brilliant and your predictions are strong. My gcse's are strong but I have to say my sciences are more rocky than my humanities, and I just got an interview from Cambridge!!! I would say just put down the ones you want to go to...ignore the first blip (the majority of people have them, but don't necessarily tell people), apply to the ones you love, that you can see yourself there. Have a crack at the ones you want to go to and maybe put an option you aren't unhappy/happy either way hope this helps!

Thank you so much - this is so helpful! Good luck with Cambridge! My English GCSE’s were the strongest and sciences the weakest (as I hated it). Thanks for pointing out the languages requirement for UCL, I had no idea but have a 6 in French if that helps?
